Beached whales saved by New Zealanders

This 3 January 2020 New Zealand TV video says about itself:

Hundreds of beachgoers race to save pilot whales stranded in Coromandel

Seven of the pilot whales were successfully re-floated and four died.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

Rescue workers and hundreds of residents and vacationers kept the whales wet until they could be led back to deeper water when the tide was high.

A total of ten [eleven] pilot whales washed ashore on the beach of the Coromandel peninsula of the North Island. Three [no, four] animals did not survive that. They were buried on the beach.
