This Massive Beached Whale Was Stuck, But Watch These Heroic Rescuers Free Her!

Stories like this don't always have a happy ending, but we're glad to report that this one does.

After being stranded on a beach in Auckland, this eight meter Antarctic Minke whale was spotted by passersby. The tide had gone out too quickly, and this poor gal couldn't budge.

A rescue team was called, and efforts began to keep the animal wet as they waited for high tide. Luckily, their efforts weren't in vain: High tide came in, and the whale was gone as quickly as she came.

See footage of the incredible event below.

Next, these people got the experience of a lifetime while they were whale watching.
