These two friendly creatures even got close enough to let people pet them!
Wet blankets and cool water kept this orca alive and calm until the water level rose high enough that she could escape. The stranded orca was kept alive for eight hours before the tide came in.
In the video the orca appears unusually relaxed for an animal in danger. One volunteer told CBC News, "I think she knew that we were there to help her."
Thanks to these kind people she's safe in the water where she belongs.
