Fishing boat crew come to rescue of whale shark trapped in net


All the 25 crew of the “Darawan” fishing vessel were in for a surprise on finding a whale shark trapped in their fishing net on the Andaman Sea in Satun on Monday night.

The crew immediately swung into action after their captain ordered them to set the struggling shark free in a heart-touching move.

The shark was among myriad other fish trapped in the net.

Setting it free was no easy task due to its huge frame and the rescue took a while until it was successfully released, much to the relief of the captain and crew.
