One New Zealand man freed a baby humpback whale after it became trapped in fishing lines off the coast of Australia.
Fisherman Joe Brogan, 42, grabbed his knife and jumped right into the water. At first the whale tried to swim away and escape, but Brogan swam even closer, taking direction from his friends on board, ABC NEWS reported.
"Cut it closer," the man holding the camera directed. "Don't try and get it off, mate; just cut the line."
Brogan finally cut the rope around the baby whale's tail and set it free. "That's it; go free, baby," one man on board cheered.
Joe Brogan later said on Facebook, "It's the best feeling you will ever have."
