A Pawleys Island beachgoer said a mother whale who recently gave birth was caught on a sandbar Thursday afternoon. 

The whale's pup was fine and members of her pod were surrounding her to protect her from nearby sharks due to some blood in the water. 

Several people were able to roll her back out to safety.
