The calf of a stranded deaf Atlantic bottlenose dolphin died Friday morning at a marine mammal rehabilitation center in Key Largo.

Veterinarians and volunteers nursed the calf through the night and administered drugs. "Everything that could have been done was done, " Lingenfelser said. "There is a profound sense of sadness here." The infant was born Monday to the deaf dolphin named Castaway, who originally stranded herself off Vero Beach in November and kept returning to the beach. Castaway was then moved to the Keys.
