This amazing video was filmed at Kyum Park of the Cetacean Research Institute in Uslan, South Korea. This clip is going viral over the internet. It features twelve dolphins, swimming close to each other just like a team.
Suddenly, one of the dolphins started wriggling as if in pain or dying and its companions, then, displayed an incredible example of team work by forming a raft for the miserable creature to float on and prevent it from drowning.
Unfortunately, the dolphin doesn’t make it and drowns eventually.
According to the researchers who filmed the dramatic video, five dolphins continued to help their dying companion until it sank out of sight. Expert Karen Mc Comb at the University of Sussex Brighton said, ‘it looks like a sophisticated way of keeping the companion up in the water.’ She also added that while this could be a display of rescuing a teammate, it could be a possibility that the dolphins were trying to protect their territory by keeping a group member alive.
