Injured Dolphin Approaches Scuba Diver For Help

The video below is an absolutely magical moment caught on film by Martina Wing, last January during a night dive at Garden Eel Cove in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

A distressed bottle-nose dolphin caught in a fishing line approached scuba diver Keller Laros for help. The fishing line was wrapped around the dolphin’s left pectoral fin, and a hook was embedded into it’s body.

Luckily Laros was equipped with scissors, and with the dolphin’s trust, he was able to free it from the line/hook. So heart-warming to see this interaction, and what an amazing feeling it must have been for the diver to set this beautiful creature free.
