Video shows dolphin reaching out to humans for help

This amazing video shows a dolphin whose fin has been entangled in fishing line, and is stuck with a hook, approaching a team of divers who are leading a team of snorklers and filming some manta rays in the waters off of the coast of Kona, Hawaii. It is incredible to see the trust of the wild dolphin who seems to know that the humans will help him or her; one of the divers, Keller Laros, works for eight minutes (while the dolphin periodically goes to the surface for air, and then returns for more help) to free the dolphin from the fishing line, after first hearing his or her cry, and then seeing the dolphin approach and even nudge the human for help.
