The gentle giant showed the diver, leaving the team in utter disbelief!
While experiencing an underwater drive in deep oceans, a group of divers recently participated in an unplanned event which turned out to be a helpful deed for a giant whale shark. This happened when the group of snorkelers was enjoying the aquatic sights on the coast and suddenly they made a fateful encounter.
Although, according to Nature Conservancy, meeting a giant whale shark underwater sounds impressive, but this video footage is something that one can never have imagined. However, it was much bigger than that.
At a moment, one of the divers experienced that a big whale shark is approaching towards him. He thought that the giant must be rushing towards him to glide as they normally do, but instead, that beautiful creature gently tugged on his hand.
He was moved, probably confused in the beginning, but was equally concerned about its welfare. On a quick note, without wasting much time he started observing it as to what had happened to the shark.

When the shark slowed passed by him, he saw that a huge commercial fishing rope was wrapped around the animal, cutting into its fins. Immediately, without taking a second, he took out a flip knife from his bag and began working on the rope. Although the rescue took less than a minute, but it was all about judging the state of the animal being in pain.
