Terrifying moment Brit woman’s yacht is attacked by killer whales led by notorious orca White Gladis in night of terror
A BRIT has told of her terrifying night after killer whales repeatedly crashed into her yacht leaving it submerged.
April Boyes, 31, is believed to be the latest victim of a witch hunt led by an avenger. White Gladifamous lady Cetacean who tortured sailors around the coast Gibralta.
She captured the moment deadly mammal started hitting the boat while threatening to emerge from the water to announce their presence.
A crew member can be heard screaming in the horrified when the menacing thuds continued like killer whales around the ship.
The group of predators are said to be White Gladis’ apprentices, who have been “taught” to attack and sink boats.
Scientists fear a “moment of extreme pain” such as a collision may have sparked her aggression, and speculate that she may now be prompting fellow killer whales to attack target ships.
Video shared by April shows a pod of killer whales ravaging the boat for more than an hour as she was stranded on the vessel off the coast of the Philippines. Spain.
She nervously said, “‘My God, oh my God,” as the orcas rushed in sailboat and cause significant damage as the safety of sunlight diminishes.
The constant collisions of the creatures finally destroyed the rudder and pierced through Hullwith April suggesting that it looks “like they’re biting it out.”
The footage then takes another unsettling turn as the killer whales continue target the boat while supported by the cover of darkness.
They managed to cut a significant hole in the hull, seeing the boat submerged as the crew panicked.
The water had completely covered the yacht’s engine room, forcing one sailor to frantically try to use a bucket to get out of it.
Another told Spanish authorities: “We need immediate help, we are sinking, we are sinking.”
Officials sent a helicopter as well as a lifeboat to rescue the four-member crew in the early hours of Thursday.
The 66 ft long ship, flying the British flag, was then towed to the port of Barbate, in the province of Cadiz, for repairs.
April said she was initially delighted to spot the pod of killer whales before the trip turned rough.
She explains: “What started as a seemingly unique encounter ended with the killer whale snapping our rudder off the boat, then continuing to tear the debris off the boat. For an hour.
“A large hole in the gull meant we had water infiltrated other parts of the boat and engine room and I can honestly say it was a terrifying experience.
“We’re all safe, I’m grateful for the coast guard.”
Ambush the yacht by at least 20 orca attack on small ships in the Strait of Gibraltar – also known as the Orca Alley – this month only.
These massive creatures can be 20 to 26 feet long, meaning they can cause thousands of pounds of damage to boats and even sink them completely.
Experts believe the increase in attacks is a revenge campaign led by White Gladis, who is suspected of sinking two yacht.
Orcas are known to be sociable creatures and therefore can easily learn from each other – including tactics to take down sailors.
The whale attacks are believed to have been going on since May 2020.
In September of that year, after 29 whale attacks were reported, Spanish authorities banned boats from sailing from the northwestern tip of the country.
Another 16 incidents were reported in November 2020, mainly young killer whales interfering with boats, in many cases damaging rudders.
