CHILE -- A whale swimming off the coast of Chile, was rescued thanks to the South American country's government Marine force.

The animal was discovered entangled in fishing net in the Chilean Patagonia region.

To free the animal from the potentially deadly constraints, divers were deployed to cut the netting away.

It took Chile's maritime authority over three hours to find the whale, and free it.
