A night charter in Hawaii in search of manta rays was approached by a bottlenose dolphin caught up in a mess of fishing line. The dolphin dauntlessly swims up to a diver showing its fin, as if to ask for help.

Keller Laros, the diver, begins to go to work on the entanglement, eventually finding it necessary to use a knife. The dolphin does its best to hold its position and remain balanced for the diver, only moving to return to the surface for air. Eventually, flipper is cut free and swims away.
