Dolphin in Distress ‘Asks’ a Diver For Help…..Real Life Free Willy! [VIDEO]
What could have been a bad ending for a dolphin ended up showing how humans can help an animal in need.
On January 11th, diver Keller Laros found a dolphin tangled in a fishing line off the coast of Hawaii and immediately went to help the animal in distress. The dolphin squealed and swam up to Laros while he was leading a group of snorkelers for a manta ray dive.
“The way he came right up and pushed himself into me there was no question this dolphin was there for help,” stated Laros. The mammal was entangled in a fishing line and had a hook lodged in its pectoral fin which made it difficult for the animal to move.
The dolphin allowed Laros to work on him to get his free and even let him bring out knife to cut the fishing line. The trust the dolphin had for him is amazing. You can see the video below.
