Stricken dolphin who ‘asked’ Hawaii diver for help
January 25, 2013 – A dolphin tangled in fishing line sought help from a diver in the waters of Hawaii.
The amazing encounter on January 11 was captured on video and the diver, Keller Laros, spent the better part of eight minutes tending to the needy mammal who readily accepted the help.
The diver explained, ‘The way he came right up and pushed himself into me there was no question this dolphin was there for help.’

Pain: The dolphin was entangled in fishing line and a hook was lodged in its pectoral fin
The group were enjoying the aquatic sights when suddenly they heard a dolphin cry and the bottlenose dolphin swam in their direction.
Mr Laros told KITV how he soon noticed that the dolphin’s movements were inhibited because it was entangled in fishing line and a hook was lodged in its pectoral fin.
