This Heartwarming Dolphin Rescue Would Be Way Cuter If The Dolphin Wasn’t A Shark

If you asked me right now if I, even as an animal lover, would yank a 12-foot shark back to safety with my bare hands, I’d probably say no.

The way I see it, if I can barely make it down the steps without it turning into an emergency situation, I have no business trying to manhandle a predator. If you asked me if I’d do that for a dolphin, however, I’d most likely give it the old college try.

Judging by this footage, Nicolas Andre, 49, seems to feel the same way. While he was taking in some seriously beautiful weather with his wife in Cornwall, England, earlier this week, he came across a man struggling with what appeared to be a dolphin stranded on the shore.

Being the lovely gent he is, Andre decided to help the guy out.

They quickly discovered that the animal’s skin was too abrasive to lug it back into the water with their bare hands, so they tied their shirts around their palms for protection.

When the shirts come off, you know it’s about to get real.

Fortunately, the whole thing went off without a hitch.

Just kidding. There was a hitch, since their new dolphin friend happened to be a shark.

It was a 12-foot basking shark, to be exact.

Fortunately, the do-gooders left the beach that day with all of their limbs intact. What these guys did was inadvertently reckless, but they ended up saving a life in the process. They did their best, and when it comes down to it, that’s all we really can do.

Here Are The 26 Most Cringeworthy Ways People Have Proposed. I Hope She Said No To #5.

Giving the love of your life a perfect marriage proposal is tricky business. Not only do you want your significant other to say yes, but you want the moment to be absolutely perfect and absolutely them. Every person who is about to propose has played the moment over and over in their heads after hours of planning… Except for these people. Instead of planning out their proposal in a thoughtful and special way, it seems that they just winged it. Saying yes to an awkward and cringeworthy like this is definitely a bad idea.

1.) What a delicious proposal.

2.) Don’t trust your friends to do it for you.

3.) This is a good way to cause a wreck, not begin a marriage.

4.) … okay, this is almost impressive.

5.) NO NO NO NO NO.

6.) I hope this is a joke.

7.) … sigh.

8.) This could have been SO GOOD.

9.) How does she say yes? Order popcorn chicken?

10.) It’s kind of worth it for her heart attack.

11.) I don’t think she’ll appreciate this less-than-flattering photo.

12.) His face will be SO red if she says no.

13.) I think I’d prefer a ring.

14.) Is there an emoji for “disappointed and depressed?”

15.) Yes, pizza, I WILL marry you.

16.) BRB, let me pee before I answer.

17.) Trashy is the new classy.

18.) You just failed so hard, Duke fan.

19.) Cut your hair and put on a shirt. Then, maybe.

20.) Rocks… they say what we’re too afraid to.

21.) I wonder how many women said no to this interesting offer.

22.) The effort is nice, but the execution is more than a little strange.

23.) I take that back. THIS is strange.

24.) Ohhhhh duuuddddeeee. No.

25.) Mild… just like your romance.

26.) This was almost perfect, until it wasn’t.

Hopefully these people found a way to have a “happily ever after” ending (even if their marriage began by sticking a ring into a chicken sandwich).
