The diver explained, 'The way he came right up and pushed himself into me there was no question this dolphin was there for help.'

A nice story to start the day Smiley

Pity they couldn't remove the hook.
But having struggled for several minutes myself to finally remove a large hook from the rubbery part of a Swans beak, I can see that it would be impossible to do the same for the Dolphin without proper tools.

Re: Dolphin seeks help

As the dolphin swam away I'm sure you can just hear it say 'So long, and thanks for all the fish'

They did remove the hook,  but didn't get all the line..

The diver removed the fishing hook and clipped the line that was near the mouth but the dolphin swam away before he could remove the entire fishing line
