Joao Paulo Moreira, 33, died from internal haemorrhaging and Wilson Reis Pedroso, 41, sufffered a broken rib after being butted by the dolphin at a beach on Brazil's south-central Atlantic coast near Sao Paulo on Thursday, daily O Globo reported. ``People don't follow our instructions that they should not ride on top of the dolphin and that they should wait for him to take the initiative,'' said Andre Rossi, a marine biologist. Rossi said he could not explain why the dolphin, named Tiao, prefered to play with women swimmers. ``All I know is that he is especially senstive with women,'' he said.
