Video: Dramatic rescue as 30 stranded dolphins saved by sunbathers in Brazil
Sunbathers in Brazil have saved around 30 dolphins from getting beached at Arraial do Cabo this week.
A group of people jumped into action when a pod of dolphins were unable to swim back out to sea due to strong ocean currents.
Tourists and locals joined together to drag the animals by their tails back into deeper water - and crowds cheered as they saved every last one of the dolphins.
Scientists are unsure why mass beachings occur but, according to the Mirror, they believe bacterial or viral infections, toxins, or loud noises could play a role.
The footage of the rescue has become an internet hit after being posted on YouTube by a German tourist.
