Dolphin dies in polluted Brooklyn canal

The widely watched dolphin that seemingly lost its way and became stranded in the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn died early Friday evening.
The dolphin stopped moving shortly after 5:30 p.m. after getting wedged between a rock and a pillar below the Union Street Bridge, 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported.
In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency called the canal “one of the most contaminated water bodies in the nation.”
