MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A dolphin on the verge of drowning in Biscayne Bay was saved by a man riding a personal watercraft.

Last week, while enjoying a day out on the water, Nicholas Tuduri noticed a dolphin struggling to swim.

GoPro video captured the pull and tug between Tuduri and the dolphin as he tried to free it from a metal crab cage.

“It was amazing. The dolphin was looking at us with his eyes, he was watching us, observing us, seeing what we were doing. He just let us do our thing, and we were able to cut it free,”Tuduri said.
