Dolphin died following freak accident during show!

A dolphin at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove died after it collided with another dolphin while performing a trick in front of spectators.

Officials said the dolphin, called Sharky, hit the other dolphin during a Sunday show at Discovery Cove. The incident was apparently a freak accident.

Sharky was a 30-year-old female dolphin that had performed the trick dozens of times, officials said.

The dolphin will be used for research at the park.
