Divers involved in dramatic whale shark rescue in Mexico

Report & Video by Mark Morris

A group of divers in Mexico rescued a pregnant whale shark from almost certain death on Wednesday.

A thick rope had wrapped itself around the animal’s body.

The incident took place in a marine nature reserve near Roca Partida.

A large, deep scar could be seen on the whale shark’s back once the rope was removed, leading to divers to believe that the animal had been trapped for a long time.
