A family day out ends happily after a four year old child accidentally threw her favourite stuffed dolphin out the window whilst travelling on the southern motorway yesterday. Believing they could replace the toy, family members spent part of the day, visiting stores to find another dolphin, only to have the child reject these vehemently. As a last resort, the distressed mother contacted police to help save the dolphin and her sanity when the child was inconsolable following the mishap. The dolphin was last seen up against the central medium barrier on the southern motorway between Orams and Hill Road.
Enter a Motorways Support Police officer, who happily made it his duty to save the dolphin. Using his years of training, Officer Hodgetts was able to scoop up the dolphin without incident, and return it to a very grateful mother. Police have been informed that four year old and dolphin are happily sleeping, following an eventful adventure.
Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.
