Injured Dolphin Seeks Help from Diver

A wild bottlenose dolphin seeks assistance to get a hook removed from its fin.

In this sweet video, a wild bottlenose dolphin slowly approaches a diver, who is with a group that's watching manta rays near Kona, Hawaii. The dolphin rolls to one side, apparently showing the diver, named Keller Laros, that it's tangled in fishing net and has a hook stuck in its fin.

According to Yahoo News, the dolphin surfaced once for a breath air during the procedure and then returned to the diver, who finished the job of cutting away the net and removing the hook. Once the dolphin was free, it swam away.
