Transcript for Instant Index: Humpback Whale Rescue Caught on Tape
thursday night. We starpt with the rescue of a hump back whale. You got to see this. Caught on tape tonight. Off the coast of hawaii. Chasing a 40-foot whale, his tail tangled in fishing gear and buoys. They attach a homing device. Two days later, they find it again. Using a knife there on the end of a poll, they cut the lines away. The whale they say, then, takes off like a shot. And to a photograph that caught our eye. World travelers with a twist. Visiting 31 countries all feet first, you could say. Matchu peach you, a lake in romania, their own living room and when they learned they were pregnant, look at this, the sonogram. The tiny feet of their daughter. Are you smarter than a fifth grader? Tonight a spelling bee judge may not want to answer that question. 12 years sierra schumacher was battling it out. Her word, braille. Brail-r-a-i-l- b-r-a-i-l-l-e. She spelled it correctly, the judge, though, thought there should be only one l. And told hershey was out. Second place for her. I was shocked. I was just kind of like, what? We were shocked too, after her school complained, they allowed her back in the comp petition. Sierra goes on to the next level and we wish her and any judge she comes in contact with good luck.
