Redington Beach, Florida -- A baby dolphin was rescued on the 4th of July by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

The video was shot by Kati McCabe who, along with many beachgoers, saw the juvenile, 4-foot dolphin struggling in the water on the 4th of July at Redington Beach.

The dolphin beached itself, and a few people tried to help it get back into deeper water. However, they kept getting caught in the strong current.

Eventually FWC arrived and took the dolphin out of the water and are now caring for it, with assistance with the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
