A Diver Was Swimming In Hawaii When A Dolphin Swam Up To Him, Asking For Urgent Help

Divers were swimming with manta rays in Hawaii when all of a sudden a dolphin swam up to one of them. She got extremely close to one of the divers as if she was asking for help. Then they quickly realized that that’s exactly what she was doing!

They discovered a fishing line and hook stuck in her flipper that hindered her from swimming with ease and probably caused her a lot of pain. He gently removed the hook, but his job wasn’t done. The fishing line was still tangled around her flipper. Thankfully, he had scissors with him and was able to cut her free. He then waved goodbye as she swam away to freedom.

It’s amazing how smart these creatures are. She swam all the way to him to ask for help, and was so cooperative while he was untangling her. She even glanced at him before she swam away as if she was saying ‘thank you.’

The footage was provided by Keller Laros, a professional scuba instructor and manta ray expert. As an avid underwater cameraman, he uses his footage for manta research. He is also co-founder and President of the Manta Pacific Research Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to “research, education, and conservation concerning manta rays and the marine environment.”
