For their part, Alexandria Security Directorate and Civil Protection Forces examined the whale in question and are set to deliver it to the National Institute for Oceanography and Fisheries.

The marine and police authorities pulled the 12-metre fin whale out of the waters during the early hours of Sunday.

The waves may have stranded the whale, pulling her away from her swarm and throwing her into a shallow section of the shore, leaving her unable to get out. Sometimes whales are dragged to shore by sea currents when sick or injured, as they do not have the strength to swim against the current.
