Sometimes, animals kill humans, sometimes they save their lives. Here, it’s the latter. This Beluga whale named Mila was not playing and not hurting the diver, it just came to rescue her.
Here is the story: Yang Yun, 26, was participating in a free diving contest (without breathing equipment) among whales when she suffered from cramps because of the freezing cold. Fortunately, Mila took the diver’s leg in its mouth and took her to the surface. And happily, the Beluga whale has small teeth so the diver was not injured.
Well, just another beautiful story with humans and animals.

Yang Yun thought she was going to die when her legs were paralysed by arctic temperatures during a free diving contest without any breathing equipment.
Competitors had to sink to the bottom of an aquarium’s 20ft arctic pool and stay there for as long as possible amid the beluga whales at Polar Land in Harbin, north east China.
But when Yun, 26, tried to head to the surface she found her legs were crippled by cramps.
“I began to choke and sank even lower and I thought that was it for me – I was dead. Until I felt this incredible force under me driving me to the surface,” she explained.
Mila, the Beluga whale, had spotted her difficulties and using her sensitive dolphin-like nose guided Yun safely to the surface.
