Whale Bangs Into Small Boat in San Diego Bay, Witnesses Claim
Where's Black's Beach?
Doo-doo-doo: You're boating around San Diego Bay on a nice summer day and boom ... a gray whale just slammed into your ride.
That really happened.
Or at least, the pair in the slow-moving speedboat, Patti Picchietti and her 79-year-old father think that's what happened this week. They hit something, they told San Diego's KGTV, they just weren't sure what it was until a jet skier came by and told them, according to Picchietti's account:
You guys hit a whale.
The duo thinks it was a wayward wail that has been spotted in the Bay in recent days.
