BALTIMORE — Maryland Natural Resources Police released a video on Tuesday, showing officers rescuing a whale that had been trapped and tangled up in fishing gear.

It happened last week about 15 miles outside of Ocean City.

The officers saw two buoys and a fishing line wrapped around the whale's tail.

In the video, the officers are seen cutting the line and freeing the whale, allowing it to swim away.
