A surfacing gray whale crashed onto a boat that carried nine tourists on a snorkel tour near Cabo San Lucas.
A 35-year-old Canadian woman has died and two other tourists were injured when a surfacing gray whale crashed onto their boat, Mexican authorities said Thursday.
The Attorney General’s Office for Environmental Protection says two other tourists suffered “considerable” injuries when the whale breached and hit the side of the boat.
The office said the boat, property of the company Cabo Adventure, had been carrying nine tourists on a snorkel tour.
The Baja California Sur state prosecutor’s office says the collision near the beach resort of Cabo San Lucas tossed the victim into the water.
A crew member and a passenger lifted her back onto the vessel and Mexican navy personnel moved the woman to shore. She was taken to a clinic, where she died during treatment.
