Lesson From Enzo Mallorca

Enzo Mallorca

The famous Italian diver Enzo Mallorca was diving into the hot sea of Syracuse and talking to his daughter Rossana who was on the boat.

Ready to submerge, felt something slightly hit the back. Turned around and saw a dolphin. Then realized he didn’t want to play but express something.

The animal dived and Enzo followed it.

About 12 feet deep, trapped in an abandoned net, there was another dolphin.

Mallorca quickly asked her daughter to grab her diving knives. In a few minutes, the two managed to free the dolphin, which, at the edge of the forces, emerged, issued an ‘almost human cry’ (Mallorca described).

A dolphin can resist underwater up to 10 minutes, then drowns.

The freed dolphin still stunned was corralled by Enzo, Rossana and the other dolphin. Then came the surprise: It was a delphine, who soon gave birth to a puppy.

The male circled them and, pausing in front of Enzo, touched his cheek (like a kiss), in a gesture of gratitude… …and swam away.

Enzo Mallorca concluded his intervention by saying: “Until man learns to respect and to talk to the animal world, he can never know his true role on Earth.”
