Beachgoers Help Stranded Whales on St Simons Island, Georgia

Georgia beachgoers and lifeguards saved dozens of pilot whales who had beached themselves near the shores of East Beach in St Simons on July 16, local media reported.

Beachgoers pushed the whales back into the water, as seen in this video recorded by Mandi Moffitt.

Moffitt recorded footage of the whales along the shoreline near East Beach until she realized they were in serious trouble.

“We are so grateful we were able to help save many of these remarkable creatures,” she told Storyful.

A spokesman for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told local TV station Action News Jax that about 50 whales beached themselves on Tuesday, July 16.

Three of the whales were declared dead one day later.
