Overturned Boat Hit by Whale?

2 people rescued off the San Diego coast say a whale ran into their boat

A whale may have caused a boat to overturn Wednesday off the coast of San Diego.

The Coast Guard received a call around noon from a Good Samaritan who said he had rescued two people after their 23-foot boat overturned about 12 miles off the coast.

The rescued mariners said their boat was hit by a whale.

The Good Samaritan took them onto his boat and towed their boat ashore, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard did not respond to the incident, and no injuries were reported.
