A 35-year-old woman died and two other tourists were injured when a surfacing gray whale crashed onto their boat, Mexican authorities said Thursday.

The Attorney General's Office for Environmental Protection said two other tourists suffered "considerable" injuries when the whale breached and hit the side of the 25-foot inflatable boat on Wednesday.

The Baja California Sur state prosecutor's office said the collision near the beach resort of Cabo San Lucas tossed the victim into the water.
