WATCH: Incredible moment woman rescues stranded baby dolphin on Louth beach

Jenni Hänninen, originally from Finland, was horse-riding with friends on Seapoint Beach, Co. Louth, when they came across a distressed baby dolphin beached on sand.

Speaking to Independent.ie, Jenni said this was the first time she ever experienced something like this.

“When I was younger I might have saved a couple of birds but nothing like this,” she said.

“I just saw the first baby dolphin at the side of the water. I didn’t know who to call or if I should call the coastguard or someone.

“So I went over to help and when I was coming back there was another one which was stranded as well. I didn’t even know they existed on the east coast,” she added.

Jenni lives in Drogheda and laughed off suggestions that she has no plans to give up her job in financial services for a career in animal rescue.
