Whales Rescue Diver in China
Two beluga whales saved the life of a diver at an aquarium in northeast China on Tuesday.
Diver Yang Yun was taking part in a free-diving competition to apply for a whale training job at Polar Land Aquarium in the city of Harbin. But when she was 15 feet down in the icy water, her right leg cramped up.
These two beluga whales, a couple named Nicola and Mila who were swimming in the aquarium with Yang, sensed her distress. They moved towards her and helped her to the surface.
Yang was one of seven final candidates competing for the job and had been required to dive as deep as possible without any breathing equipment.
