A Port Jackson shark was rescued from a fishing line before it was returned to the water, thanks to the quick thinking of a freediver based in Victoria, Australia.
Jules Casey, who is also a keen photographer had just finished a diving session when she noticed a woman pulling the young shark from the water nearby.
“I ran down to the end of the pier to see if she was able to release it,” Casey wrote in an Instagram post featuring footage of the rescue, adding that the woman was “struggling to remove the hook.”
“Thankfully she handed me the shark to quickly remove the hook and return it to the water,” she added.
