A fishing line had caused a massive cut through the wing of the Manta ray. It looks as if the Manta knows that the divers are trying to help.
Such an amazing experience/rescue! Diving in the Philippines April 2014 with Manta Rays. One approached us with fishing line slicing right through her wing. Our guide spent several attempts to cut her free and finally removed the barnacle encrusted fishing line. She swam with us for over 10 minutes until we were low on air & had to leave.
The Manta ray watched while Jane was on safety stop as she continued to circle below with another Manta ray. Jane was convinced the Manta ray stayed with them for help as this was the longest & closest interaction during the week of diving.
