VIDEO: Dolphin with fish hook in its fin swims up to diver for help

Well, it's Dolphin Day at Goddiscussion!  In another inspiring story, a dolphin who was wrapped in fishline and had a fish hook in its fin swam up to scuba instructor Keller Laros as he was guiding a group in a night swim off the coast of Kona,Hawaii (the site of some of the most expensive coffee beans in the world).  Luckily for Laros, there was a camerawoman in his group, Martina Wing, who caught the whole thing on video. The dolphin was alone, swam close the group, and when Laros told it to "come here," the dolphin swam right up to him and allowed him to remove the hook and line.  NBC Today reports:

"I said, 'come here,' and he swam right up to me," he said. "I put my hand out and I was able to get the fishing hook out of his left pectoral fin. The fishing line came from his mouth down through the hook in the left pectoral fin, and then was wrapped all the way around the pectoral fin and it trailed off down the side of the animal."

Laros removed the line, as much as he could with his diving tools, including a small pair of scissors, and the dolphin swam away, apparently happy with his work.
