A baby sperm whale was washed ashore on Flagler Beach, Florida, United States on Wednesday, Oct. 1.

“FBPD Officer Guerrero and other Flagler Beach citizens were there to try and save this baby sperm whale and await Marineland’s arrival,” said Flagler Beach Police Department in a statement shared with the video on Facebook.


Despite the efforts of Officer Guerrero and volunteers, the whale died shortly afterwards, reported The Palm Beach Post on Oct. 4.


Staff at Marineland of Florida will perform a necropsy to determine the cause of death of the whale, which was 12 feet long and weighed at least 1,000 pounds. JB
