A dolphin weighing between 600 and 700lb has jumped on to the deck of a boat, injuring a woman in Florida.

A charter boat captain called emergency services after the dolphin jumped on the boat and landed on one of his passengers.

The woman suffered a sprained ankle.

Officials from the Isles of Capri Fire Department, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Collier County Sheriff's Office used an immobilising board and a rope to push the dolphin back into the water.
