A baby humpback whale was stranded on the rocks at Tweed Heads, in New South Wales, Australia, but a group of people went to extraordinary efforts to get the animal off the rocks and back into the ocean.

The whales migrate along the Australian coast from May through November each year.

Emma O'Sullivan posted a video of the encounter on Facebook:

The group used ropes to pull the humpback whale. One of the people who was at the beach said the baby whale reunited with its mother after it was free from the rocks.
