Justin McCarthy, NSRI Mossel Bay deputy station commander, said:'At 09h20, Saturday, 31st January, NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were activated to assist at Gouritzmond where members of the public had reportedly been trying without success since 06h00 to save a dolphin that had beached.'NSRI Mossel Bay crew members responded in our sea rescue vehicle and were joined by Craig Viljoen of the Aquatic Protection Group and on arrival on the scene found the juvenile dolphin appearing to be very weak and concerned fisherman and public members from the Gouritz community in the surf line trying desperately to get the dolphin out to sea.'After efforts to get the dolphin through the surf line failed the decision was taken to transport the dolphin by road to Mossel Bay and the NSRI Mossel Bay sea rescue craft would then transport the dolphin to deeper water but sadly during transit and before reaching Mossel Bay the dolphin died.'An autopsy will be carried out by Marine Authorities.'IMG-20150131-WA0006
