Tragedy and shock has befallen the population of the Pacific Ocean as one of its largest inhabitants the Blue Whale who swam under the name of Freddy became the victim of a hit and run early this Tuesday. The 60-tonne Blue whale was hit by a speeding cargo ship and left for dead floating upside-down in the Santa Barbara Channel. The autopsy confirmed that Freddy died on impact with the ship which caused fatal injury including a broken skull. Local sea creatures are left confused and angry calling for stricter speed limits and proper shipping lanes to be enforced. A memorial service will be held at the grand coral reef this coming Tuesday, hundreds of sea creatures are expected to attend.
