Military Dad Surprises Daughter While She Works at Florida Aquarium

An intern at a Florida aquarium got a wonderful surprise while she was working on February 15.

Footage by Clearwater Marine Aquarium shows intern Katheryn hard at work when her dad, who was deployed to Afghanistan almost a year ago, walks in and greets her.

According to the aquarium, Special Agent Dalrymple was supposed to come home in March, and when he learned he could come home early, decided to stop by at his daughter’s internship for an emotional surprise reunion.

The pair embrace while Katheryn’s colleagues clap. They then pose for a family picture – which is hilariously photo-bombed by a cheeky dolphin. Credit: Clearwater Marine Aquarium via Storyful
