Beluga whale saves drowning diver

Diver Yang Yun was part of a competition to hold her breath for as long as possible in a pool of beluga whales in China.The dive was running smoothly until she tried to move her legs and they wouldn’t move.That’s when Mila, one of the beluga whales, came to her rescue. Sensing something was wrong, the whale immediately swam to the drowning diver, took Yun’s leg in her mouth and lifted her to the surface to breathe, saving her life.

For the love of animals! Look what they do for us and sadly what we coldly do to them.
