For the first time ever, dolphins were seen and caught on camera attempting to save another dolphin.
Kyum Park and his colleagues from the Cetacean Research Institute in South Korea were following a pod of 400 long-beaked common dolphins, when they noticed 12 dolphins swimming directly next to each other. They saw that one female dolphin was unable to swim and that her pectoral flippers appeared to be paralyzed.
The injured female’s twelve companions swam beneath her and supported her on their backs and eventually attempted to create a life raft by swimming close together. Ultimately, however, the female died and sank away.
