Whale spy from Russia and fished out iPhone – video

A phone dropped in the sea is usually written off by many people. Some people want to recover a SIM card or important data, so they hire a diver to try and find the lost phone. There are also those who are rescued by a friendly cetacean that will gladly retrieve the lost phone from the bottom of the body of water. Tourists in Norway have recorded just such an incident on film. Fortunately, if it had not been for the video recording, no one would have believed the story.

To make the story even more incredible and unbelievable, some people believe that the Arctic beluga captured on film is… a Russian spy whale that made headlines last week.

The video below was originally posted on Instagram by Isa Opdahl. The video was shot in Hammerfest, Norway.

The phone belongs to Ina Mansika, who was looking for the famous whale spy with her friends. Luckily for her, she managed to find him.

[blockquote style=”2″]”We lay down on the edge of the dock to get a better look and maybe stroke. I forgot to close my jacket pocket and my phone fell out of it into the water. I had already written it off and was sure it was lost forever, but the whale dived disappearing under the water and a few moments later emerged with the phone in its mouth!” – said Mansiki [/blockquote].

A Russian spy? Probably not. The spy thread appeared about a week before the situation with the lost camera. The beluga had been spotted when it came up to the Norwegian fishermen. She was wearing what looked like a camera harness. The whole thing was clearly too tight, and the whale appeared very friendly, so the fisherman decided to remove it.

The harness had a label indicating that it came from St Petersburg. So it didn’t take long for rumours to emerge about a whale spy in the service of the Kremlin.

The situation was also commented on by the Russian journalist Viktor Baranets, who jokingly pointed out that if the Russians were really using the beluga as a whale spy, they would rather not have equipped the animal with a harness that would clearly indicate to whom it belongs.
