Not exactly sailing related, but not necessarily an 'off topic' subject either..
One often hears marine lore of a dolphin seemingly saving a struggling swimmer, or warning of dangers ahead etc.. Here's a nice short video of people helping out during one of those inexplicable episodes of dolphins beaching themselves.
