Dolphins to the rescue

A man swimming in the Red Sea may have been saved by a group of dolphins, reports the Journal of Commerce.

The tourist from Britain, was swimming off the Egyptian shore when he was attacked by a shark.

After he suffered bites to his side and arm, he was encircled by three bottle-nosed dolphins “flapping their fins and tails to scare away the shark.”

The dolphins then “continued to circle the man until his friends got to him.”

According to the Journal, “such behavior by dolphins is common when mothers are protecting their calves.”
