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.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
