NBC Reporter Kerry Sanders was doing a report from Florida’s Gulf Coast beaches after Hurricane Irma when he noticed a man who was trying to help a baby dolphin. The dolphin was stranded on a sidewalk, but the man wanted to carry it back into the water.

“He had picked it up from the sidewalk and brought it to the beach. That’s where we saw him. He had wrapped it in a blanket and then we stumbled upon him,” Sanders said.

Sanders, who has covered numerous disaster and dolphin rescue stories on site knew instantly what to do so. He helped the man guide the baby dolphin toward the water amidst strong waves and wind that kept pushing the dolphin back to the shore, preventing it from reaching the deeper water. Fortunately, after much struggle, the baby dolphin was finally able to swim back home.

Apparently, Sanders was not yet done with his rescue-job for the day because, after about half an hour, he noticed another one being helped by adults who appeared to be confused onabout what to do.

Sanders stepped in and gave specific directions on how to carry out the rescue mission. “This is what we’re going to do,” he told them. “We’re not going to pick it up by the dorsal fins or pectoral fins. We’re going to get our arms underneath it and lift it up all together, 1-2-3, and then we’re going to walk it out.”

The group of grown men did as they were told and sent the extremely heavy dolphin back to the waters. Some volunteers, however, needed to swim back when they reached the deeper and slightly dangerous waters.

“It was big and it took a lot of people together to get that dolphin back out into the water,” Sander’s shared.
