Dolphins carried body of drowned victim to shore (+Video)


July Fourth 2011 – Mr Morales, a young girl and another man had been fishing on rocks when the girl fell in, witnesses told Coroner’s investigator Tommy Evans. Both men jumped in to rescue the girl. The other man made it out with her, but Mr Morales was dragged off by the current. After three hours authorities called off the search.

One hour later the body of the 47-year-old Luis Arturo Polanco Morales, of Denham Springs, was found by authorities about ten to 15 feet from the shore line. At first they believed the tide had washed him up but witnesses to the sad event at Grand Isle, Louisiana, reported the body had been carried to shore by dolphins.

Cesar Zuniga a holidaymaker from McAllen, Texas, told ABC26 News:

‘I guess it could be possible. I mean, I’m sorry somebody lost their life, but for them to do that to bring the body shore, they’re keeping an eye on us. ‘They’re mammals. I think they’re intelligent enough to do stuff like that.’

Grand Isle Fire Chief, Aubrey Chaisson, said:

‘After three hours we called off the search. About an hour later, we got a phone call when the tide brought him in, and actually, he was 10-15 feet he had drifted in.’

Chief Chaisson’s advice for anyone stuck in an undertow is not to panic. The water will take you a way out, but go with it and it will eventually release you.
