If you’ve ever seen a whale shark, then you know how massive they can grow to be, which makes the video below all the more shocking. Four huge whale sharks are trapped in a fishing net. Luckily, eight divers step up to the plate.

As you’ll see in the video below, the sharks faced a truly dire situation.

Tightly trapped in the huge fishing net, the four sharks can barely move. Time is running out for them.

The divers ride a boat to where the sharks are trapped, then they dive underwater in unison.

With great care and focus, the eight divers work together to free the whale sharks from the massive net.

Imagine being in the water with such majestic creatures!

Unfortunately, the divers probably can’t waste a moment to take it all in, as the sharks are visibly uncomfortable inside the net.

Sadly, animals getting trapped in fishing nets happens way too often in the wild.

Nonetheless, the divers free the first two whale sharks pretty easily, but the last two need extra work.

They aren’t just trapped inside the fishing net; they are tangled in it too.
