    If you haven’t noticed this amazing video resurfacing on Facebook lately, you really need to check it out.

    One morning in 2012, a person on the Prainha Beach at Arraial do Cabo in Brazil was filming the waves when a pod of about 30 dolphins appeared not far from shore. But things got alarming a moment later when the animals were washed up on the beach and got stranded.

    Fortunately everyone on the beach rushed to help, grabbing the dolphins by the tail and pulling them back out into deeper water. Within a few minutes, the crowd was cheering as the dolphins swam to safety.
