A sailboat was severely wrecked by killer whales early on Thursday off the coast of southern Spain, and the incident was caught on camera.
The Mustique was travelling to Gibraltar when it was rammed by a gang of orcas, according to the local maritime rescue agency. The orcas destroyed the boat’s rudder and punctured the hull.
According to a spokesman for Reuters, the boat’s four-person crew requested assistance from the Spanish authorities.
The boat, which was flying the flag of Great Britain, was reached by a rapid response vessel and a helicopter carrying a bilge pump.
