Residents of Arica, Chile, help a beached whale get back out to sea.

ARICA, Chile, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Residents of a city in Chile banded together to push a beached whale back into the water and tow it away using a boat.

A video of the incident Thursday in Arica shows residents pushing the 20-foot whale from the sand on Los Gringos beach back into the water.

A boat eventually joined the effort and towed the whale to deeper waters.

Witnesses said the whale appeared to have some minor injuries, likely from rocks near the beach, but was able to swim once it entered deep enough waters.
