Unbelievable Footage Captures Giant Manta Ray 'Asking Divers For Help '

Magic in the deep blue.

You never know what you'll encounter in the deep blue.

In Costa Rica, a group of divers recently swam into a giant manta ray who had become tangled in fishing rope. Typically, the large creatures avoid human contact, but in this case the manta ray approached the divers and came within an arm's length.

That prompted many to think the beautiful animal was actually asking for help.

"It was the first time I saw a manta ray. There was a very profound interaction between her and the diver," diver Thomaz Monteiro told Brazilian news station G1
