One couple witnessed and took part in something amazing while in Praia de Costa Dourada, Brazil in 2016. They saw a giant stingray caught in a fishing net, one man was trying to free the stingray while others observed and took photos.
The woman’s husband, together with a restaurant owner, decided to jump in and lend a helping hand – calling for more people to join in.
Finally, the crowd managed to untangle the net. They waited for the right moment – waves to come by – to lift the ray into the sea.
“15 minutes after the animal was freed, we saw another giant stingray jumping on the ocean, and we like to think it was the same stingray happy to be free again. It was a beautiful moment,” the woman says.
