Rob from Melbourne was recently on holidays in Byron Bay, and just happened to be on the beach at The Pass with his camera in hand when the baby humpback whale was being recovered.

The three-month-old humpback whale was stranded on the beach at Byron Bay following what is thought to be a collision with a large boat and died. The Far North Coaster posted Baby humpback whale dies after Byron Bay stranding after the event on October 26.

Thanks to Rob for the footage.
