Caught on video: Diver rescues dolphin off Kona
5 years ago
| info

Video of a diver rescuing a bottlenose dolphin that was tangled in fishing line is all over the Internet.

The incident happened on Friday in Kona, Hawaii, when the wild bottlenose dolphin came right up to the diver – as if asking for help.

The dolphin rolled over to allow the diver to cut the line away.

Diver Keller Laros told KITV that the fishing hook was stuck in the dolphin's pectoral fin and there was line coming out of its mouth.

It stayed around for more than five minutes, at one point surfacing for air, then coming back down to let the diver finish cutting the line.

The dolphin then swam away.

Laros said he's sure the dolphin came to him for help.

Saw it on the television this morning. These are the intelligent creatures they are butchering in the Cove - it is a wonder dolphins come anywhere near humans.
