A SeaWorld employee died after being electrocuted while working at the park today, San Antonio Police say.
Police say 49-year-old Ricardo Corpus was working on an HVAC unit on top of the SeaWorld employee cafe when he stuck his hand inside the unit to take a measurement.
A co-worker heard a sound and turned around to see a large puff of smoke, police said. When the co-worker went to check on Corpus, he found him unresponsive.
Corpus was taken down from the top of the cafe and transported to a waiting AirLife helicopter, but was pronounced dead at the scene.
SeaWorld officials say no other employees, guests, or animals were harmed.
Texas authorities searching for escaped prisoner
May 25, 2013 18:12 GMT
OLNEY, Texas (AP) -- North Texas authorities are searching for a prisoner who escaped from a van transporting him and others from Louisiana to Florida.
Olney Police Chief Barry Roberts says 33-year-old Michael Rimmer apparently escaped about 1 a.m. Saturday during a stop at a convenience store in the town northwest of Dallas.
Roberts says a Rimmer, who's from Florida, was part of a group in the custody of a private company that transports inmates. He says the group was in Olney but Rimmer was discovered missing when the van stopped in Terrell, 160 miles away.
The Young County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety are also involved in the search.
Roberts says Rimmer has a history that includes assaulting a police officer and drug distribution. Rimmer is considered dangerous.
