A family of beached dolphins has been rescued by three surfers who carried the terrified creatures back to shore.
A heartwarming video has surfaced of the group performing a rescue effort on two adults and two youngsters who were trapped and were weeping and gasping for breath. Two dolphins had become stranded in the beach. If it hadn’t been for these kind humans, the male and female dolphins would have been helpless and would have died. The riders started their careful salvage operation as quickly as they saw them.
The dolphins are said to have spent the day in the bay hunting herring until the two youngsters swam too near to land and were beached at low tide. The dolphins wail while trapped on the beach at low tide, unable to go back into the sea.
According to One Green Planet, the adult dolphins would have gone to rescue their young, only to get stranded due to the dropping tide.
Two of the surfers in black wetsuits can be seen carrying the marine animals on beach towels and into the ocean. As they spray one dolphin, one of the rescuers tells his friend, “Get some water on him.”
But, fortunately, the riders arrived in time and, despite their challenges, were able to rescue the existence of these magnificent sea animals.
A female surfer soon joins the males to assist in rolling a second dolphin onto a towel and carefully dragging it over the sand on a blanket. As the group slowly brings the creature to the shore, the woman can be heard stating, “He’s really heavy.”
Fortunately, the local Royal National Lifeboat Institution immediately joined the surfers to assist in moving the dolphins further out to sea. The dolphins were transferred to deeper water and free.
