Argentina: Major rescue operation to return beached whale to the sea

A young humpback whale was stranded on the beach at Mar Del Plata on Saturday, and rescue workers laboured through the night and into Sunday attempting to return the mammal to the sea. According to Marine Biologist Alejandro Saubidet «it weighs about 10 tonnes, that is why it is a problem to return it to the sea. Apparently it is coming out to die, we have returned it to the sea and it comes... Еще back.» Many experts believe the whale may have beached itself to die, and that it might have a serious illness which caused the behaviour. Another attempt using a crane will be tried on Sunday evening when the tide conditions are favourable.
