A pod of dolphins is being praised for providing a protective barrier around a group of swimmers who were being threatened by a great white shark off the north-eastern coast of New Zealand.
Rob Howes and three other lifeguards were on a training swim about 100 yards off shore at Ocean Beach near here when the dolphins raced in and herded the group together.
"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us", Howe said.
He said he spotted a 10-foot-long shark cruising toward the swimmers. They were surrounded by the dolphins for 40 minutes before they were able to make it back to shore.
Nice one flipper!
