What incident in WInnie's past necessitated trainers to tuck their whistles into their wetsuits whenever they did waterwork with her?

I'm gonna guess that she grabbed a whistle and attempted to pull it... in turn pulling the trainer into the water.

Yep! It happened at another Sea World park (I'm thinking it was SWO, but I can't remember exactly.) Winnie got jittery around the trainer and pulled them into the water by their whistle.

Yeah, all the trainers wear breakaway lanyards now so that they don't get pulled in.
