Chrissie Frickman was boating with her husband and two children on June 21 when a pod of dolphins swam alongside them.
One of the animals jumped on the vessel, knocking Frickman over, and landed on her legs. Her husband, Dirk, called authorities as he headed toward an Orange County harbour.
He splashed water on the 350-pound dolphin to keep it alive. Dirk got help pulling the dolphin onto a dock with a rope and later released it. Harbor Patrol Sgt DJ Haldeman said this is the first he’s heard of a dolphin jump into a boat.
