Ensnared Whale Shark

Divers were able to free a whale shark that got rope ensnared around its body. Video on the article.
When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.

That was cool. I hate to see the shark caught up i that rope like that. Cheers to the divers that helped him out of that mess.
