30-foot whale found on New York beach
A passer-by discovered a 30-foot-long whale, still breathing, on a New York beach Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The whale is alive but looks injured, New York Police Department Officer James Duffy said. Judging from pictures, it appears to be a humpback, he said.
It was found near Beach 216th Street and Palmer Place, on the north side of the Breezy Point neighborhood. Around 10:40 Wednesday morning, someone on a morning stroll noticed the whale, half in the water and half in the sand, and called 911.
