MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina, March 15 (UPI) -- Visitors to a beach in Argentina rescued a penguin seen struggling in the waves and carried him to a local aquarium for treatment.
The video, filmed March 10 in Mar del Plata, shows a man carefully approach a penguin seen struggling in the waves as they crash on the beach.
The man and his friends use a basket and a sweatshirt to catch the penguin and transport it to a local aquarium.
The video uploader said aquarium officials told the rescuers the penguin will be brought back to health and released back into the wild.
