Warning: the below video is unbelievably inspirational, but ultimately very sad.
For the first time ever, a group of Korean scientists caught on tape a pod of dolphins trying to save the life of one of their own. The video shows the pod pushing the very sick dolphin to the surface, constantly trying to flip it over to prevent it from sinking.
The footage is remarkable and proves yet again why dolphins are some of the most intelligent and gentle creatures on Earth. Even more inspiring is the fact that the dolphins continued this first aid for more than an hour. They refused to give up until their friend was better.
Unfortunately, this particular tale ends on a sad note, but it only goes to show how amazing dolphins are.
If anyone has a 40 nearby, join me in pouring one out for my fallen comrade.
