San Diego Incident (Film Universe)
The San Diego Incident was the name given to the infamous Tyrannosaur breakout in San Diego in 1997. The Tyrannosaur was being transported from Isla Sorna to San Diego by InGen, however as the animal had been over tranquillised an antagonist was administered to prevent the animal from dying. This resulted in the rex waking up mid-journey and escaping from its restraints. It was eventually recaptured by Ian Malcolm and his girlfriend Sarah Harding after great loss of life.
The event served as the public unveiling of InGen's accomplishments, resurrecting extinct creatures through De-Extinction and changed the paleontological landscape forever.
In 2001, whilst attending a symposium in Washington attempting to raise funds to continue his research, Alan Grant dismissed those in the audience with questions about the San Diego Incident, reminding them that he did not witness it.
