Jet Skier Accidentally Runs Over Humpback Whale


Published on Aug 18, 2014
A jet skier in Iceland has inadvertently filmed himself making contact with a humpback whale, by accidentally running over the huge ocean mammal.

Brynjar Thor Gunnarsson said that he and his friend were playing on the water as they headed home after a long day out on the fjord when they spotted several whales. Mr Gunnarsson said they headed over to take a closer look.

What they didn't know is that there was another whale, much closer, under the water which popped up right in front of him, giving him no time to steer away from it.

The whale was not hurt, Mr Gunnarsson said.
