While diving with manta rays in Garden Eel Cove off the coast of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, co-founder and vice president of Manta Pacific Research Foundation Keller Laros encountered a troubled bottlenose dolphin — somehow the poor cetacean got its left pectoral fin snagged by a fishing hook.

Thankfully, Laros and his crew were there to give a helping hand to the struggling dolphin.

See Laros work his magic in the video below!
