It's a nightmare many of us have feared or faced in the past: Dropping your phone in the middle of the ocean while on vacation!

That's what happened to Miami Heat dancer Teressa Cee, who asked someone to hold her phone while she was out on the crystal teal waters of the Atlantic Ocean, hoping to swim with the dolphins. The holder dropped the phone into the water and it sank far away.

But not so far that a helpful dolphin named Cacique couldn't bring it back to the surface!

"Cutest thing ever!" wrote Cee on her Facebook post.

We're not sure the phone will ever work again (though watch the video below for some tips you can try if your own precious tumbles into the drink) but let's hear it for inter-species cooperation!
