Posted: Updated:

SANTA BARBARA (CBS 8) - SeaWorld was one several agencies that took part in an amazing rescue off the Santa Barbara coast.

A humpback whale was spotted tangled in fishing line and traps and pulling about 200 pounds of anchors.

It took six hours for rescuers to cut the whale free.

Team members say the whale appeared exhausted, but once it was free it swam away strongly.
