380 whales have died after becoming stranded off Australian coast

Officials believe that the new group of the whales found stranded are mostly dead, and cannot be rescued.

Around 380 whales have died after becoming stranded in an inlet off the coast of the Australian island of Tasmania, according to officials.

In the remote town of Strahan, rescuers had been scrambling to save the survivors among what was thought to be 270 pilot whales on Monday, from a beach and two sandbanks.
