During a low tide, some people found a tragic scene on the British Columbia coastline. They saw an orca who was stranded upon the sea rocks. The orca had been swimming around the region yet didn’t figure out how to get back to the ocean before the tide started going out.

Circumstances like this can be a difficult test. It’s pretty impossible to move a 5-ton wale by hand. Particularly when the area where the orca was caught is inaccessible to heavy vehicles.

Fortunately, the rescuers made a plan, they instantly removed the shirts off their backs and soaked them with the ocean water to try and keep the mammal wet and cold.

The rescuers realized that their only option was to keep the whale wet until the tide returned… In 8 hours.

Gratefully, after their 8-hour stint, the water began to reemerge towards the orca, however would it be sufficient to get it back in the sea?
