Video: Whale vs. Yacht

A photo of southern right whale breaching onto a yacht made headlines around the world last week. While the yacht suffered severe damage, neither of the people on the yacht were hurt, and the whale was spotted swimming away. Now there’s video of the amazing incident.

My favorite part of the video: The boat on which the camera is filming immediately speeds away, re-enacting Bart Simpson’s friends’ reaction when he crashed his skateboard: “He’s hurt!” “Bad!” “Let’s get outta here!”
