In Georgia, the entire beach rescued about 50 whales. VIDEO
Dozens of people relaxing on the beach joined together to save about 50 whales that were washed ashore or were dangerously close to the coast in Georgia. Three animals died.
On Tuesday, the island of St. Simons about 50 whales threw several times on the shore, said in a statement the Department of Natural Resources of Georgia.
Without waiting for rescuers, caring residents organized an improvised rescue operation, throwing the whales back into the sea.
The rescue attempt was filmed in an 15-minute video, after which a local resident posted it on Facebook. On it dozens of people of different ages successfully returned the whales to the water.
“It's so sad,” McCoy said in the video. "They will die without help."
Many of the animals were successfully returned to the water, but three of the whales were killed. “The rest of the whales were last seen swimming,” the Department said.
The cause of death of three whales has not yet been established. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

At the press conference, they noted that "in Georgia this happens extremely rarely."
“These animals must be 100 miles or more from our coast,” the Department said. "So something went wrong with this whale pilot."
Members of the public should not try to help the whales, as they usually get sick or get injured, but in this case, beach lovers did the right thing.
