Young dolphin pulled from sea for selfies dies – maybe

To Santa Teresita, Argentina, where tourists are passing around a young dolphin. Everyone wants to pose for a selfie with the critter. Sky News says the dolphin “quickly overheated and died while out of the water. It was still being passed around by the beachgoers after its death and was later left discarded in the sand.”

BT cranks up the misery: “Baby dolphin dies after tourists drag it out of the ocean”

The Daily Record is less aggressive: “Young dolphin dies when it’s carried on the beach for people to stroke”

ITV says there were two dolphins.

All images come from a Facebook post by Hernan Coria. Other than that, the facts seem shaky.
