Video: Dolphin swims to divers for help

A dolphin that had become entangled in fishing line swam to a group of divers for assistance.

The Bottlenose dolphin approached the divers during a Manta ray dive experience in Hawaii. It had a fishing hook in its pectoral fin and in its mouth, wrapped so tightly that it was cutting into the flesh.

The amazing video below shows the dolphin sitting patiently in the water as diver Keller Laros works to free it from the line.

It was uploaded onto YouTube by Manta Rays Hawaii.
