WATCH: Huge Dolphin Rescue on Brazilian Beach

Earlier this week, 30 dolphins were carried ashore with the tide on a beach near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The dolphins were beached, wriggling helplessly for a few minutes, until about a dozen beach-goers began freeing the animals from the sand.

In a matter of minutes, all the dolphins were safely swimming in deeper water. Incredibly, there were no injuries or fatalities during the incident.
