There are various other theories on why pilot whales beach themselves. They are mammals, and if they are sick they won't want to sink into the ocean. They also follow one sick high-ranking member of their pod. Other proposals suggest sonar issues.
That's interesting and sad if you can put yourself in the perspective of the whale :(
Imagine the thought of being too sick to swim and just slowly sinking to the bottom of the ocean until you either die or are eaten by something scary!
