It happened Sunday to Ralph Mothes and Paloma Werner, a South African couple sailing near Robben Island in Cape Town. As you’ll see in the video, an endangered Southern Right Whale, estimated at 30-feet-long and weighing 40-tons, crashed into their yacht.
Mothes and Werner are now being investigated by South African authorities on allegations they were harassing the whale. The pair told Today Show’s Matt Lauer on Thursday that they had their engine turned off and were not following the the whale, just watching it.
