‘s friends, Dusty Harpole and Dave Keller, were adventuring in Tutka Bay, Alaska when an absolutely amazing scene of nature occurred in front of them. They watched and recorded in amazement as killer whales swam about their boat.

At the 1:30 minute mark, they noticed a sea otter being chased by the whales. After the whales attacked her baby, the mama otter jumped Onto the boat to escape certain death. 

Once they were safe away from the whales, the otter began to cry over her baby in a truly heartbreaking moment.

The video was posted online two weeks ago, but only went viralviral over the weekend. It currently stands with over 900,000 views
