Dolphin Saved After Dad And Son Help It Stay Afloat

Greek Orthodox church officials have baptised a dolphin after it made a remarkable recovery after being found close to death on the coast of Damnoni beach in southern Rethymno in Greece. The young animal was rescued when a small group of volunteers from the city of approximately 40,000 people discovered it almost helpless after apparently being separated from the rest of its family. Eventually only one of the rescuers was able to spend the night trying to help to keep the dolphin afloat so that it could breathe. As mammals, dolphins need to regularly come up to the surface to get air and will suffocate if they are unable to regularly go to the surface. Tydeus Aeneas, 36, a forester who was in the area with his eight-year-old son Palaemon had volunteered to spend the entire night with the animal, and after the father and son's sacrifice despite the cold, the animal was suddenly much healthier a day later, and it was realised it was possible to help it back into deeper water. When news of the rescue and recovery was broadcast on local television in the area ,the local church decided to give the animal an unofficial baptism before it was set free and the dolphin was given the name "Anastasis", which translates as Resurrection in English. It was then last seen swimming strongly out to see locals hope it will either be reunited with its family or else find another family.
