An Animal Saved My Life: The Dolphins That Saved the Surfer
A pod of wild dolphins take on a great white shark to save a surfer. When a California man was attacked by the shark, the dolphins formed a circle of safety around the injured surfer to prevent another, potentially fatal, strike. Experts give an insight as to what motivated the dolphins to go to the surfer's rescue.
