Whale Washes Ashore At Breezy



A fin whale in distress came ashore in Breezy Point on Wednesday. The Point Breeze Fire Department showered the 60 foot animal with sea water while awaiting marine biologists. As high tide rolled in the whale became submerged and there was hope it would survive. Alas, on Thursday, December 27, the whale was found again on the beach at low tide and around noontime was declared dead. (Photo by Tim Dufficy).
