British Columbia, Canada — People gather around a beached humpback whale that died during low tide in White Rock, British Columbia yesterday. Department of Fisheries and Oceans marine mammal co-ordinator Paul Cottrell said the severely emaciated young whale was first spotted as water receded from the sandy, tidal flats early yesterday morning. Cottrell said the eight- to10-metre long juvenile died just hours after beaching itself. (Photo:AP)
