The 30-foot humpback whale that washed ashore on Jones Beach was likely hit by a boat while in the ocean. The necropsy performed today found blunt-force trauma and bruising on the top of the whale.

The trauma likely occurred while the whale was in the ocean.

The whale was partially decomposed by the time it washed up on the beach, making further study difficult.

it was likely dead for about a week
