A new video shows the moment sailors aboard a ship in the Straits of Gibraltar fought off a pod of killer whales with poles and flare lights after the giant sea creatures broke off part of the vessel's rudder.
The incident happened on April 3 off Morocco's coast of Cape Spartel, when the pod approached the Serena IV sailboat and started ramming its rudder.
The captain of the boat, Antonio Busse, told Real Press that he had been on watch duty that evening when he heard an unfamiliar noise and rushed to the back of the ship, witnessing what he counted to be four orcas.
