    Whale kills Canadian tourist after smashing tour boat off Mexican coast in Cabo San Lucas

    A gray whale, like this one photographed at Ojo de Liebre in the Baja California peninsula, left a Canadian tourist dead when it crashed onto a Mexican boat full of whale-watchers.
    A 35-year-old Canadian woman was killed after a gray whale smashed into an inflatable boat carrying tourists watching the massive mammals off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, authorities said.

    Tragedy struck noon Wednesday about a mile off the beach resort at the tip of Baja California while a group of some 24 people including crew were out watching the marine animals.

    As one of the whales, which grow to nearly 50 feet long and weigh up to 80,000 pounds, breached the water’s surface, it came crashing onto an inflatable sightseeing boat piloted by tour company Cabo Adventures.

    “The captain had to make a movement to avoid a whale that surfaced just in front of the boat,” said a company statement obtained by Time. “The whale hit one side of the boat, leaving two people injured and another passenger hurt who, unfortunately, later died in hospital.”

    The woman was thrown into the water and was pulled out by other passengers, including one who tried CPR to no avail. The other two injured people are expected to survive, the company said.

    The animals spend the months from December to April in the warm waters off the Mexican coast, where they breed. Cabo Adventures, which offers tours aboard their inflatable boats for $89 per person, promises “the best opportunity to witness and photograph these amazing mammals as they put on a show yards away,” the website says.

    Yes. That's what whales are doing in the ocean. Shows.
