UPDATE: Pilot whales off coast of Florida

FLORIDA   --  We have an update on those pilot whales off the southwest coast of Florida.

Yesterday, we told you about a pod of more than twenty whales that seemed to be trying to beach themselves.
  
They were herded back out into the gulf.
As of this morning, five of those whales have died or been euthanized after beaching themselves near Fort Myers.
  
Two others that beached themselves are listless and appear very thin and dehydrated.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is performing necropsies on the dead whales, to try to figure out what happened.
