WATCH: Man rescues dolphin stuck in shallow water after hurricane


A Florida man rescued a dolphin from shallow water after Hurricane Michael, and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Justin Squire shared the video on his Facebook page last Thursday, one day after Michael tore through the Panhandle. The video was taken at Indian Pass Campground in Port St. Joe, one of the hardest hit areas.

In the video, Squire and his friends are driving around the campground to look at the damage left behind by the storm. When they get to the boat ramp and beach area, Squire spots a dolphin stuck in shallow water.

Squire then jumps out of his car and runs toward the water. He lifts the dolphin up by the tail and drags it into deeper water so it can swim away.

Squire posted the video with the caption, “So I saved a dolphin” with a smiley face. The video has been viewed nearly 200,000 times. It also has thousands of reactions, comments and shares.
