After admiring the killer whales off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland, lovers Lorraine Calloch and Mike Roberts went home. But the navigator laid out the wrong route. Driving past the shallow coast, the woman noticed a dolphin.
Lorraine and Mike went straight to the dolphin.
The woman determined that it was a female dolphin.
The animal was immediately covered with wet towels.
The couple quickly called the police, rescuers and specialists from the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to help.
But despite all the efficiency of the group, rescuers had to wait another half a day for the tide to return the female dolphin to the sea.
Rescuers were with the animal for 10 hours.
In the predawn hours, the tide began to rise. And rescuers managed to return the animal to deep waters.
The dolphin quickly regained her strength, and she swam away from her rescuers.
Of course, Lorraine did not expect to stay so long on the coast. But she is still glad that the navigator’s mistake allowed her to save her life.
