Watch as these divers have an unexpected experience with a struggling dolphin. 

In a recent night swim off the coast of Hawaii, a dolphin tangled in fishing wire from mouth to fin swam up to the drivers seemingly looking for help.

According to CBSNews.com, Keller Laros, the diver who rescued the mammal, was astonished that the dolphin was able to understand his commands and even assisted him in removing the fishing wire. “The fact that he recognized my gestures, that blew me away,” Laros said. “He put himself in the positions to allow me to most effectively remove the hook and the line. So that was just amazing to think that that animal is that smart.”
