Underneath the watery surfaces of our planet, a battle between good and evil is being waged with humanity in the balance. On the evil side, there are the sharks, who live only to reproduce, feed on weaker animals and unsuspecting humans, and eventually conquer the world. The good side is occupied by the dolphins, who protect innocent humans from the predatory sharks whenever they can.
Okay, none of that is true, but it is one possible explanation for what happened to long-distance swimmer Adam Walker during a recent 16-mile swim in New Zealand waters. Soon after he saw a great white shark swimming beneath him, a pod of dolphins escorted him through the water until the shark swam away.
Some photos were snapped of the dolphins during Walker’s swim, which you can see in the gallery up at the top. “I’d like to think they were protecting me and guiding me home!!!,” he wrote.
The event was also captured on video, which you can watch below. It’s nice to know the dolphins are out there protecting all of us, isn’t it? All of us who swim near sharks, I mean.
