White's Point Humpback Whale Towed into the Sunset

 

Los Angeles County Lifeguard Captain Mike Inscore pumped his left fist triumphantly in the air, signaling that the humpback whale carcass had finally come loose from the rocks at White’s Point in San Pedro on Thursday, May 12. High tide was drawing near and the mass of flesh, blubber and bones had given no indication that it was willing to budge, despite the insistent tugs from a powerful Baywatch Cabrillo rescue boat. But now it was floating free from the jagged rocks for the first…
