Rescuers Free Whale Entangled in Fishing Line

Rescuers on Saturday freed a humpback whale entangled in hundreds of feet of fishing line, after a two-day effort.

A whale watching boat first spotted the whale off the coast of Newport Beach near Los Angeles on Friday, and The National Marine Fisheries Service agencies were able to cut off about 100 feet of line.
