South Florida Man on Jet Ski Ride Frees a Dolphin Caught Tangled in Rope
Love this story.... A South Florida man simply riding his jet ski in Biscayne Bay came to the rescue of a dolphin he spotted tangled in some rope.
Nicholas Tuduri shared a video showing him using a knife to cut the rope wrapped around the dolphin's body. They did this after he and a friend spotted the mammal struggling in South Florida's Biscayne Bay.
Nicholas says the rescue took about 10 minutes.
"I think once the dolphin realized that we had the cage up to the surface and he didn't have to fight us so much to try to breathe, he just floated and stayed there with us," Tuduri said…. "It's amazing. The dolphin was looking with its eye and was watching us, observing us do what we were doing, and he just let us do our thing."
Tuduri said about seven or eight dolphins came up to the surface and swam alongside his jet ski after he freed their buddy.
"I think they were thanking me," he said.
