I rescues a whale tangled in a fishing line -- right up to it and cutting it for -- that charter boat captain pat Foster and his first made Adrian collect for collapse.
-- A little article on -- thank you write a litre we save that -- doing this now from here and it's going to be -- patent Adrian are.
I haven't had so you see this way Els -- lead and it was an unusual -- you've never seen before and it was dragon something right.
That's correct yes it was dragging a bunch of commercial division here.
It -- I used to call it that commercial fishing gear he was twenty or thirty lobster traps from where you were in Virginia where was where -- the -- from.
The traps that those commercial ball had a big MD on it -- -- it was from a Maryland on the in this way himself into our waters right Indian dragon all of us here.
These are protected species in and it's something that you you know you don't see every day on earth would make you jump in the water though.
And with an -- this large and -- did the right thing by setting and treatment and videotaping the whole thing what did you do that.
I felt -- some that this had to be done.
Just this horrible -- -- struggled suffer like that and she was definitely.
-- and in a lot of stress and and and now you could tell that.
If we didn't do something and she probably would have died.
-- if if you know if we didn't take action at that time it and it wouldn't -- turned out surrogate for her so that's what we would just felt like it needed to be done.
So Adrian is a unit jumped in with a knife and went to work -- Yes -- and -- and you when you got next to this endangered.
Is it true that you felt that she was -- looking that you -- in -- helped me or thanks for -- something.
Yeah I mean I know I know that sounds kind of corny or polish but.
You know we we've watched the -- for about thirty minutes while we're topside before I got water.
And she steadily was moving -- a steady pace and -- particular direction so when I did get in the water.
She did actually slow down when we came face to face and it actually gave me the opportunity to do what I did.
As you see her tail kicking off in the distance as -- -- cut in Europe.
She wasn't moving before that and -- I made my -- she's actually pretty still and gave me that -- opportunity which.
This kind of amazing but the idea.
That it did happen like pat with the damage dirty got dizzy your belief that -- that will survive.
Oh yeah I mean have -- the way we did see it after that -- volatile year where is it still learn me and drag.
I think it will just took one big breath -- and was arresting underwater after that.
On it was amazing feeling young man be part of it but I don't.
I don't think the normal person -- go out and have a hotline is for you know -- -- to do that that that was it was a situation it was a really were unique to us in -- And it did the opportunity presented itself Frazier knew he did but normally we would never try that well this worked out that way plus -- -- there's a component.
It's against the law to get close to these animals we need a permit to get real close -- -- as anybody suggested that you guys are in trouble for doing this.
-- There's I think there's a little clause in their present panel but I don't know the details good amount -- -- from a fisherman but no not and that's.
They're mono and they would have to get the whale to sign an affidavit and that second half we can't even recognize them -- Adrian thanks for sharing your incredible story.
They have a reasonable thanks --
