Kelly Sommariva was standing in front of an otter enclosure, playing with the camera on what she may have thought was just another regular work assignment. Then something in the tank caught her eye. And it made her turn around to witness something she’ll likely never forget.
Sommariva is a journalist from Denver, Colorado. She works for local news channel 9News and, as part of her role as an interactive media producer, is sometimes required to go and shoot stories to be used on the network. It’s possible, then, that she thought nothing of it when she was given what turned out to be a very unusual assignment.
