Dolphins – A Dolphin Saved A Boy’s Life In Italy

A Young Non-Swimmer Fell From His Father’s Boat

One of many locals dolphinss saves young  boy from drowning!

A fourteen year old boy by the name of Davide Ceci fell into the Adriatic Sea in Manfredonia, and didn’t know how to swim.

He was within a minutes or seconds of drowning when a local and well known celebrity dolphin, that the locals call Filippo, came to his rescue.

From Local Attraction To Hero

Before the incident, Filippo had simply been just a friendly 850 pound popular tourist attraction off Manfredonia in south-east Italy for around two years.

But after saving Davide, who fell from his father’s boat, he’s now a local hero!

The Father Didn’t Know His Son Had Fallen

The boy’s father, Emanuele Ceci was unaware that his son had fallen into the waves, but Filippo wasn’t, and he was pushing the boy up out of the water, and to safety.

Davide said:

"When I realised it was Filippo pushing me, I grabbed on to him".

Pushed Back To To Boat

Filippo pushed Davide close enough to the boat, that the father was able to pull him back on board, and with a swish of his tail he was gone.

Davide’s mother Signora Ceci said:

"It is a hero, it seems impossible an animal could have done something like that, to feel the instinct to save a human life".

Filippo Is An Orphan

Filippo has lived in the waters off Manfredonia since he became separated from a visiting school of dolphins.

And maritime researcher Dr Giovanna Barbieri said:

"Filippo seems not to have the slightest fear of humans. I’m not surprised he should have done such a wonderful thing as to save a human".
