It was just another day on the beach for holidaymakers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when a pod of about 30 dolphins swam ashore on Monday. Beachgoers quickly came to the rescue, rushing into the sea and dragging the dolphins by their fins and

Even though i know they were saved i still held my breath until the last one was safe.
All i could think of was what could have happened if it was night, or no one was around.
We have to find out why this is happening so frequently lately. Thanks so much Agnes!

I responded to this incident before, and I was a little surprised by the article's last comment. How quickly did this writer think"expects " would have arrived on this beach? Most, if not all would have suffocated by the time trained help arrived.
I would have done the same thing these people did- drag them back into the ocean; and thank goodness they had the sense, and feeling of responsibility to do so.

Maybe one of their own kind died or is very sick! I think they grieve in away only they can grieve!

I am glad they were helped, and I hope none were injured in the process.

Maybe because there is so much pollution in the waters and that made them look for an escape, poor things!

Hooray for all the people that were helping them!

Thank you Agnes for this article at site, ,I had seen a bunch of articles that just had the video and the people saving them, but was wondering WHAT MADE all of these dolphins come ashore, usually it when they are sick or something is terribly wrong...this article had a lot of reasons why. When I first saw the rescue I was with RUTH S. comment thinking they wanted to get out of the Mucky Ocean that Mankind turned into another many things were listed as a cause at site.

BTW, if all of these problems exist to make our Mammals want to beach themelves, WHY OH WHY do Humans continue to do these things??? OH Must of Lost my Brain....GREED?!?!?!?!

Glad all these people where there to help get the dolphins back in the water. They didn't have time to wait for somebody else to come save them, it could have been too late. It's no wonder they try to get out of the water, because of all man has done to there home. Fishing boats, sonar, you name it. Man is destroying everything he touches. These poor animals don't have a chance.

Unless they were sick it must've been something that messed up their sonar. Earthquakes, military, or even swimming through a magnetic field.
