MARCO ISLAND, Fla.- A dolphin weighing between 600 and 700 pounds jumped onto the deck of a boat, injuring a woman.
Isles of Capri Fire spokesman Keith Perry says a charter boat captain called 911 at 2:44 p.m. Sunday after the dolphin jumped on the boat and landed on one of his passengers.
The woman suffered a sprained ankle. Her name was not available.
Officials from the Isles of Capri Fire Department, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Collier County Sheriff's Office used an immobilizing board and a rope to push the dolphin back into the water.
