Watch: Over 100 whales die in mass stranding in Australia

Heartbreaking footage shows dozens of pilot whales lying dead on the sand in Hamelin Bay as a group of people try to revive some of the mammals by throwing water to them.

According to local reports, only 7 of all the stranded pilot whales had survived.

Experts and authorities say these pilot whales are known for beaching themselves but they don't know the reasons for this rare behaviour.
