In 1973, a lone killer whale was found stranded on a beach in Washington. She was sent to the Seattle Marine Aquarium. The aquarium did not attempt to release her. She was soon joined by another whale named Frankie. Later that year, the two were purchased by SeaWorld and moved to their park in San Diego.
Sandy performed in the parks shows along with the other killer whales. Eventually, she was moved to SeaWorld Orlando when the park opened. Sadly, Sandy passed away on October 22, 1977 from a cerebral hemorrhage.
