Although it’s best to avoid sharks and call wildlife officials if you see an injured animal, these two brothers in Destin, Florida, decided to help a hammerhead shark when they noticed it was hurt. The shark had several deep sea fishing hooks in its mouth and steel fishing line tangled around its head.
“My brother, along with help from bystanders worked to get the hooks out and save the dying shark,” wrote Maruc Lakos.
He added that once bystanders realized that they were trying to help the shark they quickly did what they could to help. The shark was led back out into the water and swam away.
