On the island of Orkney, Scotland, volunteers rescued an orca that was washed up on a beach.
At first they thought it was a dolphin. It was actually 3.4 meters long orca. Residents of Orkney, Scotland, told an Anglo-Saxon media on Tuesday that they alerted rescue teams after finding a killer whale on a beach on the island.
A rescue team then managed to keep the animal out of the water for an hour while the tide was rising. Dan Jarvis, 35, of the British Divers Charity (BDMLR) said “first aid actions, such as lifting the animal upright and watering regularly with synchronization of its breath.”
Once the water had reached the knee, volunteers were able to place the killer whale in a stretcher before being taken to sea. This animal was able to return to the high seas. “We don’t have a lot of killer whales off the coast of Britain and this type of bursting is extremely rare,” Jarvis continued. “On this remote island there was a chance to train BDMLR doctors, who were able to provide proper support to the animal.” Without these precious gestures, Orca would not have suspected it.
