Lifeguards towed a deceased humpback whale Thursday out to sea in an effort to keep the bloated carcass away from the Newport Beach coast. The 55-foot whale was first spotted by lifeguards off Newport Beach pier around 3 p.m. Thursday. Using a rescue boat and rope, they towed it out to sea to prevent it from attracting other fish.
