In freezing cold waters, these divers worked tirelessly to free a whale trapped in crab nets.

It took a lot of time cutting her free, and placed the rescuers in great danger.

The area, near the Farallon Islands, is not just freezing cold but infested with sharks.

These brave humans didn’t hesitate, however.
