Two dolphins stranded on the beach at Sète saved

France 3/Scoop, Dec 26

Late morning on Christmas day, two dolphins who were stranded at Sète, were rescued by Hérault nautical rescuers.

“The dolphins were alive when help arrived but they could not get to the open sea," the firefighters said.

A specialised veterinarian was contacted to ask for advice.

The vet recommended that the rescuers accompany the dolphins to deeper waters. The story ends well since the dolphins have returned to the sea and are "in good health".
