Divers rescue a whale shark

Divers rescue a whale shark

(1:50) From YT: November 7, 2012, diving aboard the Solmar V at Roca Partida, near Socorro Island, about 250 miles south of Baja, Mexico. During the first dive of the morning, we came upon a mature whale shark in some amount of distress due to a large rope cinched around it's girth... How it got wrapped around the shark is a mystery.
