Dead whale washed ashore in Iceland

A whale carcass washed ashore in Garoskagi. Many people went to the peninsula to see the corpse and ignored the unfolded police banners. There were fears that the corpse would explode.

The humpback whale was washed ashore for the weekend. Scientists from the Marine Research Institute took samples and noted that the carcass was swollen due to gassing and there was a danger of an explosion.

The police cordoned off the site with warning signs to prevent people from approaching the corpse. Yesterday, a large number of people came to see the whale up close and even touch the carcass, which scientists consider quite dangerous.
