Breaching whale lands on private boat injuring two

Topolobampo, Sinaloa — A private vessel had to be towed to a dock after a whale landed on it during a breach. The incident happened in Topolobampo in the state of Sinaloa Saturday.

Other boaters videoed a few seconds of the incident, just happening to capture the whale breaching then landing on top of the boat. Two people from inside the private vessel were reportedly injured.

After the incident was made known, local Port Authorities in Topolobampo recommended boaters take more care while on the water, respecting the fact that marine life are present in the bay.

Last month, Civil Protection in Baja California began an investigation after a private boat that was videoed speeding, hit a whale.
