Reporter rescues stranded dolphins after Hurricane Irma

A reporter for NBC helped rescue two dolphins stranded on shore in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Kerry Sanders, a Florida-based correspondent, twice found dolphins stranded on beaches while covering the storm on Marco Island.

He first found a baby dolphin and, with the help of a passerby, guided it back into the ocean.


Sanders said he asked wildlife officials for their advice on how to help the stranded dolphin, according to "Today."

Sanders later came across a second stranded adult dolphin and helped to carry it back into the water with the help of others who were also on the beach.

Reporters have been flocking to Florida to cover the devastation of Hurricane Irma, which made landfall twice over weekend, first as a Category 4 storm and then as a Category 3. The Miami Herald hosted reporters from different media outlets in their offices, which were once the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command, CNN reported.
