While surveying the devastation of Cameron Parish, La. on Monday, NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders noticed a dolphin stuck in a pool of water alongside a road. Tuesday’s Today Show included a segment where Sanders and cameraman Bill Angelucci tried unsuccessfully to help the stranded animal.

The Marine Mammal Stranding Network from Texas and the Coast Guard came to help on Wednesday. “I don’t usually take part in the news stories I cover. This was different,” Sanders blogs. “I had tried to save him. I then helped haul him out of the water. His tail whacked my tail as I lifted him out of the water. I like to think he was saying, ‘thank you.'”
