Orca Rescue screenshot Globe & Mail

It was an orca’s version of calling 911 — and these humans rushed to help the killer whale stranded on a rocky shoreline in low tide.

The 5-6 ton orca was caught off guard as the tide rushed out from Hartley Bay, British Columbia, leaving her high and dry on the rocks. A passerby heard her calls and telephoned a pair of volunteer rescue groups — the Guardians from Hartley Bay and Whale Point.

Members spent the day keeping the orca wet and cool, covering her with cloth to shield her from the sun and dousing her with water from a tank, until the tide returned more than eight hours later and lifted her from the rocks.

The killer whale swam away, almost immediately reuniting with her pod.
