A young diver in China owes her life to a Beluga Whale, like the one pictured above. Belugas have an affinity for humans, but Mila the whale took the relationship to a new level at the Polar Land Aquarium in Harbin, North East China. Yang Yun was competing in a free-dive competition there, hoping to land a job training whales. As one of seven finalists, Yang intended to dive as deep as she could in the icy water of the aquarium’s tanks without any diving gear. As she ran out of breath and prepared to resurface, leg cramps prevented her ascent.
