THE WHALE & THE BOAT

The ‘Whale Hits Boat’ photo is sweeping across the web today. A photographer managed to capture the moment when a whale seemingly jumps and lands on a boat. Get the story here.

It was an ordinary day for husband and wife sailing instructors Ralph Mothes and Paloma Werner. They had taken their yacht out into the waters off of the coast of Cape Town, South Africa when all of a sudden it happened.

A 40-ton Southern Right Whale breached the surface just off of the port side of the boat. The normally awe-inspiring sight would have been pleasant—but unfortunately before the whale could splash back down into the water, it practically landed on top of the sailing vessel.

The image of the nearly vertical whale dwarfing the sailboat is among the most viewed photos on the web today. The Whale hits boat photo can be found below. It’s no Photoshop trick either. Mothes appeared on The Today Show this morning, and here is what he had to say about the incident:

“Suddenly I saw this huge monster shape come up out of the water on my port side…It just happened in an instant. It was quite frightening.”

Luckily no one was hurt, but the boat seemed to buckle under the immense weight of the animal. PEOPLE reports that the mast was snapped like a wooden matchstick, and part of the cabin was damaged.

As for the whale, it did leave behind some barnacles and blubber, but the absence of blood leaves observers hopeful that it didn’t suffer any serious injuries.
