Atlantis Bahamas-Shark Commits Suicide

Atlantis resort in the Bahamas announced last month they were laying off 800 employees.

This week a reef shark at Atlantis leaped to it's death on a water slide. Are the two connected in any way?

Eh, probably not:

"Yesterday morning at around 9:30 AM, prior to the resort's waterscape opening to guests, a 12+-year-old female reef shark jumped over an 18 inch wide and 1 foot high sustaining structure into the resort's Leap of Faith water slide".

The Atlantis Aquarists believe the shark was startled by an unusual circumstance that we have no way of defining completely. In the over ten years guests have experienced the Leap of Faith, the reef shark itself, harmless to humans as it is fed regularly by our staff, had shown no previous incidences of leaping out of the water in the marine habitat.
