A Surfers Hear Baby Whale Crying And Come Running To Help Her

An exhausted baby pilot whale who became stranded during low tide was saved from drowning this week  all thanks to the kindness of surfers who refused to ignore her pleas for help. Earlier Wednesday morning, Mauricio Camareno and his friends were out to catch some waves along a beach in Costa Rica when they saw a strange lump protruding from the water in the mouth of a small river nearby.

As they moved closer to investigate, they began to hear the animal crying out.

“She was very weak and could not keep afloat,” said Camareno, as translated by the Costa Rica Star.

Forgoing their plans to spend the day surfing, the group leapt in to save the whale calf. Using all their strength, they carried her out to deeper water closer to the open sea. Still, she was so weak that they literally had to hold her at the surface of the water to breathe.

For more than six hours, the rescuers kept to that noble task, reports Amelia Rueda  long enough for the whale to regain her strength.

Fortunately, their efforts paid off. At high tide, the surfers guided the whale out to deeper waters where she was able to swim away on her own.

Truly a job well done!
