The Dolphins who saved a fisherman


Ronnie Dabal was fishing for tuna in the choppy waters of Puerto Princesa Bay when a squall came upon him and turned his boat upside down. After battling with punishing waves for the next 24 hours on top of a piece of styropor, Dabal was losing his strength as darkness was coming. From out of nowhere, a pod of around 30 dolphins and a pair of whales came and started to flank him on both sides


The dolphins started alternately to nudge his tiny life raft using their pectoral fins towards the direction of land. Dabal said he passed out while the dolphins were doing their slow chore of nudging him to shore, and woke up on the beach of Barangay where he was finally assisted by local residents there.
