Dragging them desperately by their tails, this is the dramatic moment beachgoers leapt into the sea to save around 30 dolphins from certain death.
The rescuers had been sunning themselves on the Rio de Janeiro coastline in Brazil when the dolphins appeared out of nowhere and suddenly beached en masse.
Initially stunned, the sunbathers soon realise the impending danger and race into the surf as the mammals let out piercing squeals of distress.











As this video shows, they make frantic efforts to grab the animals by the tails to pull them into deeper waters.
And it appears their attempts were successful as all the dolphins were rescued to rapturous cheers from onlookers.
The footage, filmed on Monday by a German tourist, has received more the one million hits on YouTube.
The dolphins were apparently caught in a strong current which meant they were unable to swim to safety.
One viewer, edpati1, said: 'Very good job! Congratulations to all involved! I wish I was there too.'
Rombilly1 added: 'Humanity at it best. Everyone who helped rescue should be very proud of themselves.
'Warmed my soul this morning.there is hope for us yet.'

There are lot of reasons why but a plausible explanation is that because they are a 'follow-my-leader' type of species, they will follow the pod leader, even if its in distress and confused.

They usually beach themselves when in distress and the pod follows.

Wonderful video. All it takes is one good person (the initial guy in the yellow who responded first) and others follow. Very heartwarming and so nice to see.
