Caption only: Waves halt rescue of 35 whales beached on Tasmanian coast

A man and child look at sperm whales stranded on the beach along the west coast of the Australian state Tasmania. Strong waves Thursday temporarily halted attempts to rescue the 35 whales. The pod, which is beached at Marrawah, on the northwestern tip of Tasmania, is the second in three weeks to become beached on the island state.
