SAN DIEGO, California (KXAN) – A tourist’s video posted on YouTube shows the panic-filled moments before a whale-watching ship slammed into a dock at San Diego’s Embarcadero.
“Park it anywhere,” a person shouts to laughter. A moment later, his tune changed: “I wouldn’t stand in front of it, guys!”
As the crowd runs, the Adventure Hornblower makes good on its name as the captain blows the horn. An elderly woman required extra assistance getting out of the ship’s path moments before the crash.
According to the Los Angeles Times, seven people on the boat were injured. 144 were on board.
