Orange County, Ca. – One California woman was expecting her 18th wedding anniversary to be eventful, but not like this.

According to the Orange County Register, she and her family were sailing near Dana Point Harbor when a dolphin hopped aboard.

The dolphin landed on the woman’s legs, crushing them and the dolphin injured its nose during the encounter.

Her husband told reporters that the dolphin hit his wife and “punched his daughter.”

The woman spent five hours in the emergency room and was treated for two broken ankles and torn ligaments.

The family took the dolphin back to shore and made sure it had water to survive.
