An endangered and rare northern right whale off the coast of Virginia Beach is now free thanks to a brave local fisherman.
Earlier this week, two fishermen saw the whale struggle in fishing rope wrapped around its flippers. They decided that they could possibly save the whale by diving in a cutting the fishing ropes.
