This is such an amazing story. A video shared by Oceano VideoSub, shows divers off the the coast of Costa Rica’s Bat Islands being approached by a huge manta ray. However, what might have been a perilous encounter for the scuba divers became a humanitarian mission.
Incredibly, the massive winged fish — which was ensnared in a fishing line — seemed to be pleading with the humans for help to be set free.
Needless to say, the divers were shocked, but they did the right thing and cut the thick lines from the ray, which can weigh as much as 5,000 pounds and can have a wingspan of 18 feet.
