A video of a whale shark “asking for help” from a group of fishermen in East Malaysia has been melting people’s hearts.
The clip posted on Monday, 2 December, showed the whale shark entangled in rope as it approached the boat.
The incident allegedly took place in Sarawak.
As it swam towards them, one of the men grabbed the rope with a hook and cut it off with a knife.
Grateful to finally be free, the creature swam off, splashing its tail as if thanking the men for their act of kindness.
In the background, the fishermen could be heard saying ‘bye’ to it while exclaiming how happy it looked after being set free.
Since the video went up, several people have praised the men for saving the creature.
