The whale will soon thank the diver and his friends to have saved its life.
This heartwarming video shows a young whale finally being cut free after getting tangled in a fisherman’s net.
Five people out snorkeling spotted the humpback while plying the Sea of Cortez and after worrying she was dead, they decided to investigate.
On closer inspection, the group found she was actually trapped in a nylon material which stretched 15ft below the surface.
The brave team then took it upon themselves to cut the one-ton beast free and spend an hour sawing at the net with a knife.
It’s a happy ending for all involved, as the humpback is finally rescued and swims off unharmed.
And if that wasn’t a reward enough, she then breaches the water in front of her liberators as the group watch in awe at the remarkable display.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen such an act of bravery.
