Two kayakers were lucky to be alive after a nearby humpback whale swallowed them whole … it all got caught up in the video.
Julie M.C.Sorley And Liz Cotrial While watching kayaking and whaling Monday at Avila Beach in California in San Luis Obispo, a huge mammal came to the surface to amass a larger fish than anywhere else.
Check out the video … you can see other kayakers and paddle boards near the whale … another kayaker filming the incident from a distance. At first, the whale seemed to swallow the women, but only their kayak capsized and they were thrown underwater.
Cotriel told FOX26 News, “I thought I’d push.” Like, I’m going to get a whale out of the way! It was a very different thought. I keep thinking ‘I’m dead, I’m dead’. I thought it was going to come down on me. The next thing I know, I’m underwater. “
Many paddle boards are said to have been rescued before they could get back on their kayak and head ashore. “I was shaking my shirt when a bunch of fish came out of my shirt,” Cotriel said as they got back into the car. None of the women were injured … but McSorley is said to have lost his car keys.
