Frantic efforts are underway to rescue nearly 150 dolphins found beached in central Japan.

The dolphins came ashore along a stretch of shoreline early Friday.

Locals rushed to save the animals. Residents worked to stop the creatures from drying out, and helped them back to sea.

Dolphins have beached three times in this region northeast of Tokyo in the past 15 years.

The cause of the beachings is not well understood.
