This morning, a baleen-mouthed whale washed up on the shore of New York’s Breezy Point, and now desperate attempts are being made to save its life.
Just after 8 a.m. today, Breezy resident Lou Bassolino went out on a coffee run and thought he spotted a cap-sized boat but upon further inspection, he realized it was a whale that had beached itself.
He quickly went back home to get his family to help come save the animal and soon after, other volunteers and the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation were on the scene frantically trying to save the whale, reports the NY Daily News:
“It’s a beautiful whale,” said volunteer Ed Manley, one of the rescuers at Beach 216th St. “I think she’s carrying a baby. It’s a shame. I hope we can save her.”
