" Star whale takes one
real step to freedom
NEWPaT, Ore. (AP) - Keiko the killer wiale,
who leapeover a harbor breakwall to the sea in the
"Free WilI movie, took a real-life step toward free-
dom yesteay when he was hoisted from his aquar-
ium tank tkbe airlifted to a bay pen in Iceland.
On a sia1 from a handler, the 9,050-pound,
droopy fined orca swam into a nearby holding
tank and kis slowly lifted with a nylon sling into
a special tnsport tank on the back of a truck.
He mad chirping noises during the move.
lundres of children and adults waved good-
bye, somearrying "We Love You Keiko" banners
outside th Oregon Coast Aquarium.
"A parbf me feels sad," said 9-year-old Kasey
Lindsay, vAo wore a Keiko T-shirt and sipped Keiko
root beer inside the aquarium. "But then I'm glad
he is leavig so he can be with his family."
The wile headed to an Air Force C-17 trans-
port plan for the eight-hour flight to Iceland.
There, hewill be placed in a football-field-sized
bay pen tat will serve as a sort of halfway house
until is ale to be released into the wild.
There vas less enthusiasm in his soon-to-be
home, wkre killer whales abound. "It's ridiculous
to have 21-year-old orca come back here to
Iceland,"said artist Eva Benjaminsdottir. Others
questiond whether he can adjust to the wild.
The 193 box-office hit "Free Willy" about an
orca thratened by a villainous amusement park
owner, tok on a whole new meaning when it was
learned iat the real-life whale was actually in a
crampedvlexico City tank.
Schot kids collected pennies to help save the
ailing liko (KAY-koh). Warner Bros. and cell-
phone Hlionaire Craig McCaw kicked in millions
more to bring him to the spacious Oregon tank to
recuperate from lung inlCct ions and lesions.
TIwo and a tzalf years and $12 million later,
Keiko has regained his strength, put on at least a
ton of muscle and blubber and has taken lessons to
catch his daily diet of 145 pounds of fish, instead
of being hand-fed.
"I1e is the most fit whale I have ever seen in
captivity," veterinarian Lanny Cornell said before
the whale was loaded into his water-filled, fiber-
glass box for his long flight to Iceland.
In his pen, Keiko will be reintroduced to the
sights and sounds of the same waters off Iceland
southern coast where he was captured more than
19 years ago at age 2.
Still, trying to transform a long-captive, pam-
pered whale back into a ruthless predator has
never been tried before, and whale handlers at
aquariums across the nation say Keikos move is
only a feel-good exercise that puts the whale at
Critics say that Keiko isn't skilled enough at
catching fish, has no experience interacting with
other orcas and could be shocked by the frigid,
harsh conditions of the North Atlantic.
And some question the $2 million cost, all paid
by the Free Willy Keiko Foundation.
Even Keiko's most enthusiastic handlers say it
will be at least two years before they can deter-
mine if he can survive in the open ocean. And they
concede he may spend the rest of his life - 10
years or more - in the pen.
The varied dangers to Keiko left mixed feelings
with the children of Oregon's coast who have
adopted the whale as their own.
Feds plan for
better air bag
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal officials are expected to
announce a proposal this week to spur more advanced tech-
nology in autos to prevent inflating air bags from accidental-
ly killing some passengers.
Although air bags have saved more than 3,000 lives,
according to government estimates, they have been blamed
for killing I I I people since 1990 -- mostly child passengers
or small female drivers.
Aiming to prevent such deaths, the proposal would expand
the kinds of crash tests required for federal certification ofair
bags and expand the types of test dummies used to an entire
"family" rather than just the traditional adult male, govern-
ment and industry officials said, speaking on condition of
The new proposal could be made public as early as today,
officials said, with President Clinton tentatively scheduled to
make the announcement. After a public comment period, olli-
cials at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
have about a year to come up with a final regulation.
NHTSA officials declined to comment on specifics of the
plan, but it recently cleared a final government hurdle before
it can be made public - approval by the Office of
Management and Budget.
Many children who were killed by air bags were unbelted or
unrestrained, allowing them to be thrown close to the dashboard
- where the air bag deploys -- during pre-crash braking.
To try to limit that danger, the agency will propose testing"
with 6- and 3-year-old child dummies who are not properly
seated but are instead close to the dash board. NIITSA also
will require testing with an infant dummy in a rear-facing
infant seat and a female dummy, officials said.
