The name killer whale is a misnomer
He's lucky the Orcas didn't take offense and turn him and the boat into so much flotsam.
the only recorded events involving orca attacks on humans were in captivity. We were told by a scientist named Ingrid Visser who specialises in orca research that there are no recorded events that describe orca attacks on humans in the wild.
No doubt there will be folks on this forum that will prove her wrong
and the video flighted earlier is hardly an attack, it's a guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. If an orca had attacked him he would have been lunch.
