A family was just enjoying a day out on the water when they noticed a large humpback that seemed to be dead. As they stared at its motionless body, the whale let out a huge breath that quickly sent the family into a panic to save it.
It was caught in a net that was commonly used by fishermen. All of its fins were stuck, so the family began trying to cut it loose. When they realized it would take a lot more than the small knife that they had to save this massive creature, they phoned in for help. But the news on the other end wasn’t good. It would take at least an hour for help to arrive if at all, so the men took it upon themselves to keep trying and free the whale before it was too late.
The end of the video is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. The reason why the whale did what it did will certainly never be known, but we think it was to thank them for saving its life.
