Whale slaps girl on the face

BAJA, CA (WFLX) - A woman was whale watching recently off Mexico's Baja peninsula when her boat got a little too close to nature.

A video uploaded over the weekend on YouTube shows a large whale splashing in the water and then getting closer to the vessel.

Suddenly, the massive flipper of the whale comes out of water and brushes the face of the woman.

The video ends, but it doesn't appear that she, or anyone else on the boat, was hurt.

The clip was uploaded to YouTube on Feb. 23 and has received more than 701,000 views.
