Check out this video showing a dolphin with a hook and line embedded/tangled in one of its pectoral fins, approaching a diver, then waiting patiently while the diver cuts the line and attempts to remove the hook. Kudos to diver Keller Laros and videographer Martina S. Wing. Amazing!

Divers on a Manta Dive in Hawaii came across a dolphin in distress. J

I loved seeing this. It is fascinating that the wild dolphin instinctively knew he could get some help. Too bad they didn't get the hook, but it will heal in, I guess.
