Rescuers find young girl’s body surrounded by dolphins
Reports from South Africa about a tragic drowning off Llandudno beach, Cape Town say that the body of a teenager was found surrounded by a pod of dolphins.
Rescue services launched a search for the missing 15-year-old girl who is thought to have slipped off the rocks and been swept away by strong currents. Her body was found floating one kilometre from the shore encircled by a number of the dolphins.
The discovery could be linked to the fact that many species of whales and dolphins are known to mourn pod mates, including carrying dead calves or juveniles for a period of time after they have died.
