WATCH: Man Frees Endangered Whale from Fishing Line

Two fisherman about 50 miles off the coast of Virginia spotted something you don’t see everyday: an endangered Northern Right Whale. It wasn’t just a lovely day on the open water to whale watch. This particular animal was tangled, dragging heavy fishing debris and in desperate need of help. Thankfully, Adrian Colaprete¬†came to the animal’s aid and filmed the whole thing.

The experienced diver jumped into the water and, as the whale came toward him, he cut the fishing line and freed the animal. Colaprete told the local news, “It was kind of scary at first, but it was real trippy. As soon as the whale caught up past me and I was parallel to its face and eye, it kind of stopped, which was a trip. He kind of gave me a little window to get down there [to the tangled rope].”

See the entire thing below and feel thankful that these two men were in the right place at the right time. No pun intended.
