    Residents of Mar del Plata in Argentina have spent an entire day trying to help a whale swim back into the ocean after becoming stranded on a beach.

    An eight-meter long humpback whale, weighing almost ten tons, was found washed up on the shore of Punta Mogotes in Mar del Plata, a resort city on Argentina's Atlantic coast. It is not clear if the whale had any problems or whether it simply became disoriented. The rescue team eventually used a tugboat to pull the animal back out into deep water.
