The Adventure Hornblower struck the seawall off San Diego much to the shock of a crowd of onlookers in viral video from some Belgian tourists. Prepare to hold your breath as the crowd begins to disperse, but an elderly lady slowly tries to get out of the way.
Five crew members and 139 passengers were aboard the 150-foot whale watching boat at the time.
San Diego Fire-Rescue officials said the crew of the Adventure Hornblower reported that the throttle of the ship was stuck in forward position.
Here are all the details about the scary collision from the Union-Tribune’s Pauline Repard. Seven passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries. Of the seven, three were sent to hospitals with neck, back or leg injuries, Gerboth said. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
