16 Whales Die In Mass Stranding Off Scottish Coast
A wildlife rescue organization said 13 whales died following a mass stranding off the Scottish coast Sunday, one day after a similar incident occurred in Florida.
British Divers and Marine Life Rescue said Sunday that the mammals were among a group of 26 pilot whales stranded at Pittenweem, in eastern Scotland.
Coast guards, volunteer medics, fire crews and police are all also involved in efforts to rescue the 13 still living.
But rescue co-ordinator Gareth Norman said that it was likely more of the whales would die.
A further 24 pilot whales from the same pod are currently in shallow water 4.8 km along the coast at Cellardyke.
