    Beluga whale saves drowning diver as she sank, paralysed by cramp
    A DROWNING diver has a beluga whale to thank for helping to save her life after her legs were paralysed by cramps.

    Yang Yun was taking part in a free-diving contest at Polar Land in Harbin, north-east China, in which participants were required to sink seven metres to the bottom of a pool and stay there for as long as possible without the aid of breathing equipment.

    Ms Yun, 26, thought she was going to die amid the beluga whales she shared the arctic pool with, after struggling to move her legs while trying to kick her way to the surface.

    "I began to choke and sank even lower and I thought that was it for me - I was dead,” she told The Sun.

    “Until I felt this incredible force under me driving me to the surface."

    That “incredible force” was Mila, a beluga whale which had noticed her distress and clamped its jaws around her leg.

    Using her sensitive nose, Mila drove Ms Yun carefully to the surface, to the amazement of onlookers and an underwater photographer who captured the entire incident on film.

    "Mila noticed the problem before we did,” an organiser told The Sun.

    "We suddenly saw the girl being pushed to the top of the pool with her leg in Mila's mouth.

    "She's a sensitive animal who works closely with humans and I think this girl owes her, her life."

            Thats just amazing. Another reason we should stop slaughtering beautiful animals like this.

            Dear god, it's some weird bastardized three wheeled two person go-kart.

                          Maybe this is just a giant ploy by the US to stop China from SCHIFTING into the position of world superpower...

                              and your average underwater photographer too it seems.

                              how come a whale realised the problem and acted to save her before the humans down there?
