A pod of 50 sperm whales perish off Australia

This is a tragic video of a group of sperm whales that had beached themselves on a sand bar just off the coast of Australia. At last count there were at least 50 whales in the pod and only 5-7 of them still alive when rescuers first arrived. The rescuers are trying frantically to save the remaining ones by keeping them wet until the tide turns so they can be pushed or dragged back into the sea.
