MONMOUTH COUNTY, N.J. (KDKA) – Two fishermen had a whale of an encounter during a recent excursion in New Jersey.
According to New Jersey State Police, two people were in a 20-foot boat about a mile off the coast in Monmouth County. They were minding their own business when a whale decided to crash the party.
The whale surfaced right beneath their boat, which caused it to capsize. As a result, both people were sent overboard and into the water.
No one was injured and the state’s Marine Services Bureau is conducting a vessel accident investigation.
According to police, “charges against the whale are pending its apprehension.”
