This is really a whale of a tale! 

The Chilean Navy had an interesting day when they had to rescue a trapped southern whale in the seas of the Patagonia region. The poor mammal got confined in a fishing net and became so tangled it couldn’t move at all.

After more than an hour performing the rescue, the divers were finally able to release the whale. 

Free Willy never seemed so real!
