Vets from the University of the West Indies are trying desperately right now to save a whale that beached itself on Maracas Bay this morning.
Beachgoers say the whale was first seen shortly before 10 am.
Lifeguards on the beach towed it back into the sea and stayed for over two hours before further help arrived.
Shortly after noon, the dolphin was brought to shore.
This is a developing story and it will be updated as more information becomes available.
Rescuers have cordoned off a part of the shoreline as they work feverishly to save the dolphin.

Every year approximately 30,000 species of animals are being driven to extinction, according to a Harvard University study.
