Divers rescue dolphin in Black Sea

A dolphin trapped in a sand formation in the shallow waters of a marina in the Black Sea province of Samsun was rescued by a team of divers on May 19.

The dolphin was battling for its life when people saw it in the water at the Kurupelit Marina and informed the rescue service in the district of Atakum.

Divers from the local fire and rescue service, who had been diving in the area to mark the Youth and Sports Day, arrived on the scene immediately. In a short while, the divers managed to take the dolphin into a boat and released it about three kilometers offshore.

A sand pile caused by the waves had trapped the dolphin, a rescue team member said.
