2 Fishermen Stumble Upon A Dolphin In Distress And Turn Heroes In South Carolina.

Fishermen save dolphin.

It was supposed to be just another fishing day for Elvis Black and Brian Crosby along South Carolina’s Waccamaw River. They were gearing up for a tournament, hoping to catch some big fish, but they ended up reeling in something far more significant — a stranded dolphin!


Stuck in the mud and clearly out of its league, the dolphin needed some serious assistance. Elvis and Brian, realizing that their ordinary fishing day had just turned into a rescue mission, leaped into action.

“Score one for the good guys,” Brian said, fist-bumping Elvis after successfully rolling the dolphin back to water. No big deal, just a couple of fishermen turning into marine biologists for the day. If there’s one thing to learn from these two South Carolinian angling aficionados, it’s that you never know what you might find at the end of your fishing line. In this case, it was a happy ending for a lucky dolphin, all thanks to the quick thinking and compassion of two friends.
