Amazing orca rescue caught on film

Amazing footage has emerged of a stranded orca being rescued from rocks off the Canadian coast.

The young whale stranded on B.C.’s North Coast on Wednesday and rescuers battled for nine hours to keep the orca alive until the tide came back in again.

Although the whale was crying out when first approached, Janie Wray, one of the rescuers said that after some time she began to calm down and closed her eyes.

“It was as if she realized we were there to help her,” she said. “Her breathing remained the same, and then the tide started to come up.”

Once the water level was high enough, the orca swam off to return to her pod.
