PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Officials with Gulf World announced Wednesday that the rough-toothed dolphin Ivan has died.

They said he was receiving treatment for bacterial pneumonia, but died late Sunday night.

Ivan was stranded off Cape San Blas, Florida in 2004, which is how he got his name. Due to his young age, NOAA deemed him non-releasable.
