An amazing incident with a happy ending happened off Avila Beach in California. A humpback whale that found itself near Avila beach in search of food, accidentally swallowed kayakers – Julie McSorley and her friend Liz Cottriel.
Since whales do not eat people, the girls was instantly spat out by a large marine mammal.
A video of the incredible incident was posted on the Internet. Looking at these shots, we can say with confidence that the girl received unforgettable impressions from her experience, which, of course, she told local journalists about.
“I thought, ‘Oh no! It’s too close,'” said McSorley. “All of a sudden, I lifted up, and I was in the water.”
“I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’m going to push. Like, I’m going to push a whale out of the way!’ Cottriel added. “I’m thinking, ‘I’m dead. I’m dead.’ I thought it was going to land on me.”
“Next thing I know, I’m underwater.”
