Divers in the Maldives discovered a young whale shark trapped by a rope, so they sprang into action for a daring rescue.
When a team of divers was leading a guided tour off the coast of Maldives, they discovered a young whale shark trapped by a heavy coil of rope.
Moving quickly to save the young shark, the divers swam beside the great fish and began cutting loose the thick rope.
It was wrapped around the shark’s fins, preventing it from swimming freely, and creating obviously discomfort for the gentle sea creature.
Refusing to give up, the divers finally managed to cut loose the rope and free the whale shark, who swam away into the ocean depths.
It was a memorable moment for the brave divers, whose quick action saved the life of a beautiful young whale shark.
