Video: Stranded tope sharks rescued in Dublin

Published 16/07/2013

Jeff Gartland was out walking his dog in the early morning sunshine on the beach in Rush, Dublin, on July 10 when he discovered about 30 little tope sharks stuck in a pool of water.

Along with the help of some local adults and children, he rescued the sharks and let them back into the sea. This video shows the sharks in the water and the rescue process as they were placed in a container and thrown out to sea.
