The whale helped a woman in getting back her phone which she had dropped in the water.

A beluga whale from the coast of Norway is making headlines on social media for an unusual act.

The whale helped a woman in getting back her phone which she had dropped in the water.

In a video posted on Instagram, the whale is seen coming out of the sea with a phone in its mouth. The woman then takes over the phone and greets the whale.

The video captioned, "when animals are kinder than humans" was posted on the social networking site by Isa Opdahl on May 5.

Some reports are also speculating that the whale is the same animal who was accused of spying for Russia.

Some fishermen in Norway had stumbled upon a white beluga whale with a tight harness, which they said appeared to be Russian made. The captured whale had raised alarm in Norway and prompted speculation that the animal may have escaped from a Russian military facility.
