Previously we posted video of a dolphin trapped in a net being freed by Solmar V dive guides, and it's great to see them continue to be good ocean samaritans in their latest video entry.  Recently a pregnant female whaleshark presented itself with a thick encrusted line wrapped around its body, cutting into its fins. 

Divemaster and Cruise Director Daniel Zapata swam down past 100 feet to cut the gentle giant free.  The video of this rescue has gone viral, check it out and share it for all your fellow divers to see.
