A team of whale researchers and volunteers worked for eight hours Wednesday to keep an orca alive after she became beached on rocks at low tide in British Columbia, Canada. The group used buckets of water and water-soaked sheets and blankets to keep the stranded whale cool until the tide came in. "She cried often, which tore at our hearts, but as the tide came up there were many cheers as this whale was finally free," said in a Facebook post from the group The Cetacean Lab. Once the whale was able to swim away, she quickly reunited with her pod, which was nearby. — Watch it at Canada’s CBC News
