The Icelandic Coast Guard Rescues a Humpback Whale - Video
A lone fisherman just off the coast of Skagafjörður in northern Iceland accidentally had a humpback whale swim through his net. After making a few attempts himself to free the whale he called for assistance. Fortunately the Coast Guard was only half an hour away and responded quickly. They managed to cut a strand of the net that was hooked around the whale’s fin. Not an easy task with such a giant animal up close. From a short distance away, a second humpback whale kept an eye on the whole operation.
