Rescue Team Rushes to Free Entangled Humpback Whale Near Hawaii

A rescue team worked feverishly to save an entangled humpback whale in Hawaii. It was trailing more than 285 feet of braided line near Maui.

After a few unsuccessful attempts, the crew had good news to report. “We just freed the whale, guys,” one of the rescuers says.

The retrieved line will be used to determine where the whale came from.
