Even though this instance is unique, there have been reports of orcas approaching people for assistance in the past. In one case, four orcas that were stuck in the ice were in serious danger until locals and rescuers came to their aid. Something like this happened recently when a baby killer whale tried to rescue its entangled mother by asking for help from some humans. The baby whale can be heard making frightful noises near a group of humans on a boat at the beginning of the video. The relevant people quickly responded to the cry for assistance by getting in touch with a rescue squad.

Killer whales, or orcas, are sociable and extremely intelligent animals. Depending on the person and the situation, their conduct toward humans can change. As top predators in the wild, orcas eat a variety of foods, including fish, seals, and even other whales. The equilibrium of marine ecosystems and their own survival depend on their predatory behavior. Orcas may show curiosity in human interactions, but it's crucial to remember that they are still wild animals and should be handled with care and respect.
