Scuba diver frees shark entangled by hook in mouth in Florida.
The shark was stuck to an artificial reef in Destin.
The diver used pliers to cut the steel leader attached to the hook.
In Florida, a scuba diver successfully freed a shark that was entangled by a hook in its mouth, stuck to an artificial reef.
Taz Felde, an instructor from Under Pressure Divers in Florida, took to Instagram to describe the rescue mission he and his partner undertook to save the shark.
Tezz Falde wrote, “We were made aware of a Nurse Shark in distress at a local man-made reef here in Destin Florida. The Artificial Reef system is located at Beasley Park on the island in Ft Walton Beach. It sits in about 18-22 feet of water. Another diver reported that he and his dive buddy came across a large Nurse Shark that was trapped and had a hook in its mouth and tethered to one of the reef structures. They had made several attempts to free the animal with no luck. So I and a fellow diver (Diver Dan) headed to Beasley to see if we could help.”
He further added, “We located the shark very quickly and we were able to cut the steel leader that was attached to the hook and free the shark from its entanglement. We did lose our pliers as they were pinched on the leader when it left in a hurry.”
