Baby dolphin dies on way to being rescued

SAN ROQUE Beach goers at Puente Mayorga saw a fin flapping in the sun yesterday, and thought it might be a shark. It turned out to be a baby dolphin that got stuck in the shallows. It was shaded, watered and taken care of as well as possible until the emergency services arrived, but the stress of being stuck was too much for it and it died on the way to the Cegma (Centro de Gestión del Medio Marino) in Algeciras. It is not unusual for dolphins and other cetaceans to be beached in the area, but local people did say they had never seen one so young.
