A young whale got caught in a lock on the night of Monday, 10 May in south-west London (UK).
On the night of Monday, 10 May, London rescue teams embarked on an unusual mission: to loose a young whale trapped on the banks of the Thames. It was eventually thanks to an inflatable cushion that the mammal was released around 1am, but it is not certain that it would pop out according to the rescue team.
Hours before the operation, cetacean was examined and sprayed by a veterinarian, concerned about her health condition. The first whale was sighted on Sunday by spectators in south west London. It measures between three and four meters, and lives in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This is not the first time such a rescue has taken place in the British capital. In 2006, a whale was found trapped in the Thames. At the time, cetacean did not survive.
