Human helps a dolphin - level 3

Human helps a dolphin - level 3

03-09-2014 07:00

This underwater footage shows the moment a dolphin tangled in a fishing net sought the help of a diver in Hawaii.

The video from a Manta Ray diving group shows the amazing and touching interaction between a bottlenose dolphin and a human. The meeting shows diver Keller Laros spend time tending to the dolphin who graciously accepted his help.

Laros was leading a group of snorkelers on a diving experience when the dolphin squealed out.

As it swam right up and pushed itself into him, Laros soon noticed that the dolphin's movements were inhibited because it was entangled in fishing line and a hook was lodged in one of its fins.

The dolphin calmly and patiently allowed the human to work to help it break free.

Difficult words: footage (video), tangle (wrap), sought (requested), interaction (when two or more things do something together), tend to somebody (to look after somebody), graciously (kindly), squeal (make a high-pitched noise), inhibit (partly stopped), lodged (fixed in).
