New Jersey State Police released a picture of the capsized boat.
And suddenly the great beast was before them! He was ten stories high if he was a foot! Yes, a couple of fisherman were capsized today when a whale surfaced beneath their boat! Fortunately, no one was injured. https://t.co/egABlt0Boj pic.twitter.com/gpsWKI281h— NJSP - State Police (@NJSP) August 17, 2018
Authorities said two people were fishing in the boat on Thursday, approximately one mile off of Deal, Monmouth County.
They said the whale surfaced beneath the vessel causing it to flip.
Both people fell overboard, but no one was hurt.
State Police noted on Facebook that charges against the whale are pending.
