Fast acting beach-goers, along with Local Police officers and biologists from Malaga's Centro de Recuperación de Especies Marinas (CREMA) led to the rescue of a young dolphin which had washed up onto Chilches beach last Sunday morning.

The animal was taken to CREMA where it died the following day.

A necropsy was to confirm the cause of death.
