A man who died during July 4th celebrations in Louisiana had his body brought to shore by dolphins.

47-year-old Luis Arturo Polanco Morales and another man had jumped in to the water to save a girl who fell in after fishing on the rocks, while the girl was saved Morales was dragged out by the tide and drowned. His body was later found after dolphins had carried it back to shore.

Verneph: wait a minute. We've rescued them from nets? Who the heck put the nets out there in the first place?!

The things that we truly mastered and can claim to be ours is manipulative skills, knowledge and mathe... [More]
