BROOKLYN - A pair of Brooklyn teachers were in shock recently after spotting a wayward dolphin in Newtown Creek.

Roy Arezzo and Ann Fraioli, of the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, took a picture of the dolphin after spotting it in the estuary.

According to the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation, there has been a recent increase of dolphin sightings in New York waterways. Experts suggest staying about 50 feet from a dolphin if you spot one.
