It was very early in the morning when Mauricio Camareno and his buddies were hurrying to catch the waves, yet a strange noise draught their attention. The source of it wasn’t too far away, so the group decided to investigate. When they got closer, they immediately realized it was a baby pilot whale in desperate need of help.
“She was very weak and unable to keep afloat, Camareno told the local news outlet, Amelia Rueda.
The nice men forgot about their surfing and they all jumped in to save the poor creature. Initially, they carried the calf to the open sea, but it turned out the whale was too tired to swim. Camareno and his friends knew they could not abandoned her, so they decided to stay with the baby whale until the tide came back.
It took nearly six hours until the marine creature regained her strength and the water was deep enough for her to swim back in ocean. All this time, these heroes kept the baby whale afloat so she can breath and they put water over her to protect her from the sun.
Fortunately, after so many hours, the surfers great efforts paid off as the whale find her way back in the ocean, to reunite with her family. None of this have been possible without the kindness of these men!
