Pro surfer paddles with a purpose

Pro surfer Jodie Nelson was half-way through a 40-mile charity paddle from Catalina Island to Dana Point in Southern California, when a whale joined her.

Nelson says the whale stayed with her for two hours, rolling over exposing its belly, then surfaced and blew some bubbles.

Nelson's paddle raised more than $120,000 for breast cancer research.
