Students, workers, soldiers and other volunteers have hardly tried to save a whale stranded on beach, close to Iquiqe town in Chile.
Mammal reached this desperate situation after being wounded in the wing when he got caught in a fishing net.
Despite the superhuman efforts, the whale could not be pushed back into the sea because of injuries and huge waves, and died.
The place where the whale was found is near the area where hundreds of sea lions have died after they failed to shore, one months ago. Some researchers blame the toxic waste came from a nearby factory, while others believe that the sea lions have died from malnutrition caused by intense fishing in the area.
