As a tourist was at the beach to pass another ordinary day in Arraial do Cabo in Brazil when he spotted something odd in the ocean. As soon as he realized what was going on, he began filming immediately. The video (below) shows the pod dragged closer and closer to shore, seemingly by a strong current, until the animals lie stranded on the beach itself. Thrashing their bodies and making high-pitched squeals, they become stuck in the wet sand and are unable to swim back out to sea.
People approach, at first unsure of what to do, but soon cooperating to drag the dolphins back into the water by their tails.
The entire pod was returned to safety within a couple of minutes. Beachgoers broke into cheers and applause as the dolphins swam away.
This is something you don’t see every day (or really any day). Thanks to the immediate reaction of the sunbathers this incident had a happy ending! Team work always has great results! s
