Baby Porpoise Rescued from Rice Field in Japan
Twelve days after a giant tsunami hit the coast of Japan, a Japanese man found a baby porpoise (similar to a dolphin) struggling for its life in the shallow seawater of a flooded rice field.

The man and his friends then wrapped the dolphin in wet towels and drove it back to the sea, where they set it free. Read more about the baby porpoise rescue at TODAY.com.
