Everglades: Pod Of Whales Stranded

Rescue crews were en route to help a pod of 20 to 30 pilot whales stranded in shallow waters in a remote area of Everglades National Park on Wednesday, officials said.

The goal is to keep the whales alive during low tide, and then when high tide comes in, crews will try to get them back into the sea, Linda Friar, Everglades National Park spokeswoman said.

Four boats and a crew of 15 were heading to the remote spot, Friar said.
