The gang of killer whales set their sights on a boat carrying five people on July 31, sinking the vessel which had been sailing about six miles off the coast of Sines, Portugal when the attack occurred.Fortunately, all five were all rescued when a nearby fishing boat, Festas Andre, was told by the Portuguese Navy to find the stranded passengers and bring them to safety - but the boat was unsalvageable and sank.READ MORE: Melting glacier in Swiss Alps leads to horrifying finds beneath snow and iceNow it has been revealed that the killer pod launched another attack just hours after the initial onslaught.The second attack involved two passengers on a small sailboat, who had been sleeping when the orcas struck, Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã reports.The whales made a beeline for the boat's rudder, using their massive jaws to bite it until it broke.The boat was escorted by another watercraft back to the dock.This comes as concerns have arisen over a sharp increase in whale attacks in the region.Orcas often spend the summer months off the coasts of Portugal and Spain, feeding on the tuna that live in the area and around the Gibraltar Strait.
