Fishermen Rescue Tangled Humpback Whale
Occurred on May 2, 2019 / Ocean City, Maryland, USA
Info from licensor: "We went on an after work flounder fishing trip. We saw some buoys moving ominously across the water. As we got closer we noticed a small humpback whale breaching the surface completely tangled in netting. We then acted as fast as we could to help the big baby. We spent around three hours cutting off what we could. Our only chance to cut the netting was when the whale would surface for air. We cut away as much as we could before approaching storms and darkness came. That's when the department of natural resources deemed it too dangerous to proceed."
