See It: 21-Foot Killer Whale Dies On Florida Beach

  • A giant 21-foot killer whale weighing an estimated 3-and-a-half tons has died after beaching itself.
  • The incident occurred early Wednesday morning at the south end of Jungle Hut beach in Flagler County, Florida — approximately 30 miles north of Daytona Beach — when a 7,000 pound female orca washed ashore, according to an announcement made by the Flagler County government on social media.
  • It is thought that the whale was alive when it beached itself but eventually lost its life when it couldn’t make it back into the sea.
