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.

A humpack whale breached among a group of kayakers and ended up landing nearly on top of two of them. It probably wasn't very fun to get thrown out of their boat but it looks like everyone involved is okay.
