Daisy must have been minding her own business on the pasture when she fell into a hole in the ground just large enough to fit the lower half of her body. Her owners called a towing company and a veterinarian in to save her. It was a close call but she's doing fine. As scary as the incident must have been for her, she looked remarkably calm when they found her.

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.
