The dolphin was left out of the water so long that it overheated and died.

The dolphin, which is known as La Plata or a Francisana dolphin, is usually found off the coast of Argentina, as well as Uraguay and Brazil.

It's said to be a vulnerable species with an estimate of only 30,000 left in the world.
