Once in a while, we get animals being trapped in our shallow waters. This time, it's a whale and I'm glad the stranded whale has been helped out to sea and I hope it's doing fine. Poor thing. See below for the full story.
FREEING LUULUMBO: Tourists, rescuers and Pulau Gaya villagers trying to free a Bryde's whale, known to Kadazans as Luulumbo, that was trapped in shallow waters between Pulau Gaya and Pulau Sapi off Kota Kinabalu on Friday. After numerous attempts, divers and a tugboat managed to set it free. It was towed to deeper waters at 7.45pm.
