Whale, 06/24/68: Veterinary staff treat Nemo the whale after an incident at Sea-Arama Marineworld in Galveston. Soon after entering his tank for the first time, the 1,000-pound whale struck a glass porthole with his tail. The resulting surge of water sucked the whale through the opening and into a dry pit that separated the tank from the spectators' seats. Nemo suffered multiple lacerations, and swam around the partially water-filled pit until 10 handlers could lift him back into the tank. Sea-Arama had only recently acquired the whale from Sea World in San Diego, California.
