Right This Minute News Pop: Group of Australian Divers Rescues Rays

Gulf Coast CW

You can see this diver with Rays Awareness notices something struggling in the water.
 
He carefully puts his hand on top of the ray and pulls out a hook stuck in its back.
 
The thankful creature quickly swims off into the ocean.  
 
On another dive, Trent Williams sees a much bigger ray with a fishing line sticking out of its mouth.
 
He swims in and carefully cuts the line to free the ray.
 
The activist group wants to remind people to safely pick up and dispose of hooks, lures or any fishing line to protect marine life.
