Divers jump into the water to help a whale that couldn’t open its mouth

The actions put his life at risk.

It is not known for sure how the large animal ended up in that situation, but it is presumed that it was because some fishermen left the net adrift. This is said when observing how a whale was wrapped in a fishing net. The sizable marine mammal looked very uneasy.

A ship spotted the whale that was in serious trouble and immediately notified the Aquarium marine rescue center in Palma de Mallorca, which did not hesitate to take action. The actions were duly documented by the brave marine experts, even though lives were at stake.

“She knew we were there to help her,” said one of the rescuers, who even assured that the marine giant made a gesture of thanks before walking away from them. It is recognized by nature lovers that whales are very intelligent.

Gigi Torras was a diver in the group who explained a little about the situation they experienced. The whale could not open its mouth. The Palma de Mallorca Aquarium marine rescue center was in charge of sending the group of divers after a whale in trouble was seen about 5 km from the island.The rescuers tried to break up the net from a boat. Then, divers from the Albatrol dive center joined the effort in a 45-minute operation to manually remove the mesh.

“In the first 10 seconds the whale got a little nervous, there were bubbles everywhere. But later, (…) I think she knew that we were there to help her. “She relaxed and we started working from the front of her mouth to the back,” Gigi mentioned in an interview with Reuters.

“We went on and on (splitting the fishing net) and she shook herself a little to free herself,” the woman told Reuters. Gigi explained that after freeing her from her, the whale stayed for a few minutes swimming with them and offered a small gesture that was interpreted as a thank you and then left.

Actions like this are a clear example of how there are human beings who care about our fellow planet members, and how each one, using different knowledge, can contribute their grain of sand to make this world a better place for all beings.
