Happy Ending To Tale Of Humpback Whale

A group of whale watchers in the Gulf of California have become conservation heroes.


The three men rescued a humpback whale which had become entangled in a discarded fishing net.


When they first saw the creature she was floating motionless on the surface and they feared she was dead.

But she then made a loud, groaning-like sound and when they got closer it became clear what was wrong.


They immediately set about freeing the whale - which repaid their efforts in the most spectacular fashion.
