Wildlife Photographer's RIB Capsized by Blue Whale
NewsMonday 07 July 2014
A video of wildlife photographer being thrown into the water by a blue whale has recently gone viral.
Sat aboard his RIB, off the coast of San Francisco, Dale Frink was capturing two blue whales feeding on the surface, when suddenly an 80ft giant came from underneath to flip the boat over.
The scenes were recorded by a second video camera attached to the RIB. Although blue whales do not eat humans, they are still likely to protect themselves if feeling in danger. Luckily, no one was injured and a nearby boat spotted the incident and alerted the coast guard.
