Surfer Almost Swallowed by Whale in California (Video)

whale watcher close call

A surfer was almost swallowed by a humpback whale near the coast of Santa Cruz, California. Footage taken by Barbara Roettger shows two whales jumping out of the water with their mouth wide open, very close to a woman floating on a surfboard and a pair of kayakers.

Seems like these people are in fact whale watchers, with little regard for safety regulations. It is extremely dangerous to get that close to whales.
