Runner Helps Beached Dolphin Back To Sea

A selfless runner who discovered a beached dolphin during a race stopped to dramatically push it back to sea. In the incredible POV footage, trail runner Alan Clarke is seen heading up to the helpless mammal, splashing it with water before carefully pushing the large dolphin off the sand. During the ordeal, the dolphin could be heard squeaking in discomfort while Alan attempted to rescue the roughly 6.5ft, 220lbs creature. Despite the struggle, Alan, 37, was able to help the dolphin back into the waters off Hardwicke Bay, along the coastline of the Yorke Peninsula, Southern Australia. According to Alan’s running partner Quentin van der Werf, Alan was more than 300 kilometers into record-attempting run around the coast, coming into contact with the dolphin on April 29.
Location: Hardwicke Bay, Australia
