Muscat: A few Good Samaritans in Dhofar governorate got together to rescue a whale shark that was stranded on the Al Dhareez beach.
In a video posted online, the group can be seen helping the huge whale shark into the water in the Wilayat of Salalah.
Tariq Al Nahdi a fisherman from Salalah said, "This is the season of sardines. After fishermen cast their nets in the sea, they withdraw it to collect fish. Sometimes, the whale sharks track the nets and follow it to the shore, this ends with them getting beached. So the fishermen help them return to sea again."
