Divers help dolphin

Ocean Wings Hawaii

Divers in Hawaii recently lent a hand to a dolphin in need.

A video taken by Ocean Wings Hawaii shows a bottlenose dolphin approach a diver who notices his fin is entangled in fishing line.

The dolphin waits as the diver uses a knife to cut away at the line and free him.

The group was on a night dive to view manta rays off the coast of Kona, Hawaii.

They said they've helped free manta rays from entanglement before and that the dolphin showed interest in getting some help for himself.
