Pilot whales stranded along coast of Western Australia – video

Rescuers battle to save 20 pilot whales stranded on rocks in Western Australia's Bunbury Harbour, south of Perth. Volunteers and staff from the department of parks and wildlife spent several hours trying to float the animals out to deeper water. Twelve whales did not survive although despite initial concerns the rest were successfully herded out to sea
