Incredible video has surfaced of that whale incident from last week — putting to rest any doubts that photos of the collision were somehow staged.
Like most home videos, this one is a bit shaky but clearly shows the Southern right whale approaching the yacht and then leaping up onto it. Cries of “They don’t listen…” and “It’s a disaster…” surround occasional laughter. What’s even more incredulous is that instead of offering assistance, the boat filming the incident actually decides to speed away.
Note to self: Never get involved in a water accident off the coast of South Africa.
