The event consisted of partaking in viewing manta rays feeding on plankton when a lone, bottle nosed dolphin approached the diver in a manner that seemed to indicate distress more so than curiosity that dolphins normally display when interacting with humans. The dolphins incessant lingering caught the eye of divers long enough to see that the was fishing line caught between the dolphins mouth and pectoral fin. Dive instructor, Keller Laros, took action by undoing the entanglement.
The dolphin even angled itself in a manner making it easy for the diver to get access to the problematic area enough to free the dolphin of the fishing line.
This miraculous look at the behavior of animals makes one wonder how human-like even animals can be and to even able to communicate their needs.
"I was at the right place at the right time. I am honored to share the footage with all of you." writes Martina S. Wing, owner of the touring company Ocean Wings Hawaii, who filmed the moving rescue. "Let's make better decisions for the ocean and the creatures that inhabit it. I strive to make a difference, and you can make one, too".
Justin Gregg, who is a voice actor, dolphin expert, and writer suggests that the dolphin in question probably didn't approach the humans in a manner thinking it would get help from the humans, in fact, it probably only thought that the humans was just another means of bumping up against something other than other inanimate objects for a change to perhaps remove the line by simply rubbing up against structures to remove it. Chances are, it figured humans was just another "structure" of sorts that could accomplish the same task.
