A pod of 20-30 pilot whales has been stranded in shallow waters in a remote area of Everglades National Park, officials said.

The whales were spotted Tuesday near Highland Beach, according to officials at Everglades National Park.

Biologists and park officials assisted some of the whales Tuesday, but ten of them beached themselves late Tuesday and four of them died, officials said.

Rangers were headed back to the area Wednesday to try to assist the remaining whales.
