ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- SeaWorld says its killer whales shows will resume this weekend after a whale killed its trainer at the Orlando park.
SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment President Jim Atchison says trainers won't get in the water with the killer whales for now until officials finish reviewing what happened to trainer Dawn Brancheau.
The veteran trainer was dragged into the water Wednesday by killer whale Tilikum. The medical examiner says she likely died of traumatic injuries and drowning.
Atchison says Tilikum will remain an "active, contributing member of the team" at SeaWorld.
Atchison says whale shows will resume Saturday. He says he's not sure how long it will be before trainers are allowed to get back in the water with the animals.
SeaWorld has locations in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio.
