This student group's trip to the Baja Peninsula took a turn for the getting-slapped-in-the-face-by-one-of-Earth's-largest-mammals when, "[U]nfortunately, Chelsea got smacked in the head by a whale's tail."

Unfortunate for Chelsea, no doubt. But fortunate for the rest of us, because after they made sure their whale-smacked friend was fine, the witnesses put this whole thing in slow motion.
