People walk past a beached whale in the Breezy Point neighborhood on Dec. 26, 2012 in the Queens borough of New York City. Breezy Point was especially hard hit by Superstorm Sandy. Rescuers believe the whale will not be able to be saved.
Updated Dec. 27: Marine officials said the whale has died.
A 60-foot-long finback whale was discovered beached Wednesday morning along Jamaica Bay in Breezy Point, Queens.
"It's an animal that is severely emaciated," said Rob DiGiovanni, Executive Director of the Riverhead Foundation. "It is severely underweight. The outcome does not look good.”
