Swimmer lost in icy waters of Ireland survives 12 hours, a group of dolphins "alert" for rescue

Ruwiri McSorley sank from Castlegregory Beach to swim well off the coast of Ireland. But after about eight miles[8 km]the man lost his way and was unable to return to shore because of exhaustion and freezing water.

So at the mercy of the waves it continued for about 12 hours. But he was not alone. Like a group of dolphins wanting to protect him, with him, to catch him. They were fundamental in saving man: the presence of animals attracted the attention of the volunteers of the Fenit RNLI Rescue Group, and among them was the head of an individual, who worked to a certain extent. Floating.

The search began at 12.40pm, where McSorley’s disappearance was reported and his clothes were found in the water. It was only around 20.30 that lifeboats found the dolphins and the man aboard the ship: the 24-year-old is fine and owes his life to unresolved swimming mates.
