Suddenly, a whale surfaced to take a bite of fish and crashed into his boat. A whale foraging for food off the coast of South Africa nearly bit off more than it could chew after knocking a hapless father off a tourist boat and nearly swallowing him. Marino was on a whale watching tour with his 22-year-old daughter Gillian and the rest of his family in Algoa Bay when the dramatic scene unfolded on April 3. At first, Gillian thought they had hit a rock, but when she looked around her, she saw the whale go into the water. But in the midst of the shock she could not see her father being thrown overboard and it took her a few more moments to realize that he was in the water. Fortunately, there was another boat in the area and he was able to come up and help Marino out of the water before the whale returned.
