Race against time

China Daily - - CHINA -

Bor­der po­lice of­fi­cers pour buck­ets of wa­ter onto a hump­back whale that was stranded on a beach in Qi­dong, Jiangsu prov­ince, on Mon­day, to help keep it in sta­ble con­di­tion. Lo­cal fish­er­men found the whale and alerted the po­lice, who came to the res­cue. The whale was safely guided back to the sea by fish­ing boats when the tide rose in the af­ter­noon. The same whale be­came stranded again on Tues­day af­ter­noon, and was res­cued again.
