Kerry Ware and her family were on a boat near Fort George Island, Fla., when they saw a beached dolphin stranded on a sandbar, ABC News reports. "It was just flapping and it looked really helpless so we stopped the boat to see what was going on,"

I hope the dolphin wasn't hurt as pulling them by the tail can cause spinal damage. It does beat the alternative I guess if that was the only way she could be moved, and marine rescue help was unavailable.

What a noble example for the young boy, Justin.

He should be joining us here on Care2 in a couple of years.
