Shark Appears To Be Asking For Help And Gets It From Fearless Diver

Joshua Eccles, a diver with Emerald Charter in Jupiter, Florida, was swimming in the Atlantic Ocean this week when one of the lemon sharks passing by kept bumping into him.

Eccles suspected something was amiss with the creature, so he took a closer look, which the shark didn’t seem to mind.

“It would lift up its stomach and I noticed something, so I kind of poked at it a little, the little hook or something,” he said.

Showing no fear, Eccles decided to alleviate the shark’s discomfort and remove the hook.

The “little” hook turned out to be the size of his hand.

After Eccles removed the hook, the shark swam away, only to return several times. At one point, the shark swam right up to a video camera, which Eccles believes was its way of saying thank you.
