stranded on a beach

I heard on the news today that a whale calf had beached itself on the beach opposite Surfers Paradise, and that people were trying to get it back into the water.

My wife toddled down and took these pictures

a video of the rescue team leader describing what they were going to do:

so with the tide coming in the plan seemed to be to dig a ditch up the beach to allow the water to float it off

I'm told that the litle fella was very happy to be returned to water and splashed about for a bit before being led out (herded?) to sea by some people on JetSki's.

Hopefully they find the mother and the calf will be ok
