The show included a section with soccer balls during which the dolphins were to throw these light into the audience. However, for a still undetermined reason, a basket ball, initially intended for the animal’s playtime, found its way into the water. One of the dolphins threw the heavier ball which struck the ventilation system and caused the pipe to fall directly into the audience. About 800 guests were present at the time of the incident. "Three children were slightly injured as well as a teacher who was slightly more affected. « We immediately stopped the show and administered first aid. Victims were taken to Saint-Lucas Hospital in Bruges for evaluation but, according to the latest information, the injuries are not serious, « stated the amusement park.
