A whale jumps on a boat, and crushes it. Â A 33-foot yacht was capsized after a large 40 ton whale jumped on to the boat. Â The creature was also 33 foot long, just like the yacht. Â Luckily, no one was killed during this incident, but it was a close call for Robert Mothes and Paloma Werner. Â Both are in their mid 50’s.
Paloma told the Telegraph UK that “spotted it about 100 metres away and thought that was the end of it. Then suddenly it was right up beside us.Â I assumed it would go underneath the boat but instead it sprang out of the sea. We were very lucky to get through it, as the sheer weight of the thing was huge.”
IT’s not every day things like this occur. It must have been very scary for the couple to be enjoying a day on the yacht, only to have it capsized by a 40 ton whale.
The damage to the boat was extensive, and the whale left bits of blubber and skin behind, showing that that right whale did not escape without harm.
See the picture of the whale and the boat. You can see that this incident was something that was rather amazing.
