A giant manta ray with fish hooks embedded under its eye approached a diver off Western Australia and appeared to be asking him for help in removing the unwanted fishing gear.

Monty Halls of the U.K. was among a group of freedivers exploring Ningaloo Reef with Ningaloo Marine Interactions when he witnessed the encounter with guide Jake Wilton, calling it "one of the best things I've ever seen underwater."

"She got closer and closer and then started unfurling to present the eye to me. I knew we had to get the hooks out or she would have been in big trouble. I went for a few dives down to see how she'd react to me being close to her."

The manta ray remained calm with his close proximity, and Wilton said it "stayed completely still in the water," allowing him to remove the hooks.

"That manta absolutely understood what was going on," Halls told The Independent. "Jake went down again and again and she just remained still for him."

This particular manta ray is known to locals as Freckles.

David Boyle, who lectures on marine biology at the University of Plymouth, told The Independent, "It's pretty incredible behavior if this is what happened. It's not uncommon for animals - generally mammals - to interact with divers, but for one in distress to seek out assistance would be novel indeed.
