Hear from the Two Fisherman that Rescued a Whale in Alaska

RightThisMinute Moment for 11-04-13 

RightThisMinute was first to bring you an amazing whale rescue in Alaska. Now hear from the fisherman that saved the Orca. Jason Vonick and Nick Segal splashed water on the back and fins of this whale trying to keep it cool and calm. They found the Orca trapped on the rocks in Klakas Inlet in Alaska. Two whales swam nearby keeping an eye on their stuck friend. With the tide coming in and the water rising there was a real fear the whale might drown without being able to keep its blowhole above water. After roughly four hours, Jason and Nick decided to use their boat oars as levers to push the whale off the rocks and back into the water. They believe the whale was chasing a seal when it got stuck on the rocks.
