Baby dolphin rescued!

Dolphin trapped in the Golden Horn rescued by local construction workersA dolphin which was trapped in the Golden Horn for 3 days after losing its way was finally rescued yesterday by a group of construction workers, who set the dolphin free in the Sea of Marmara.

Though help had been requested from the local fire department, it wound up coming through in the form of two boats used by workers on a local culture center. The men worked for 2 hours to capture the lost dolphin, and finally were able to get a hold of it, wrapping it in wet blankets and transferring it to a boat owned by the Istanbul Municipality Sea Department.
