Moment a wounded manta ray begged divers for help: Sea creature approached film crew and flipped over to ask them to for help to remove hooks embedded under her eye
-Photographer, Jake Wilton, was diving in Western Australia when the wounded manta ray approached
-Mr Wilton, who knows the ray as 'Freckles', soon realised the majestic beast had hooks caught under her eye
-Footage shows the animal unfurling her wings before Mr Wilton and floating completely still before the diver
-After several attempts Mr Wilton was able to free the hooks and save her from potential blindness and disease
'I knew we had to get the hooks out of her eye or she would have been in big trouble.'
After a few attempts, Mr Wilton needed one final dive to clear the hooks.
'I went down for one last try and the manta stayed completely still in the water,' he said.
The video shows Jake rise triumphantly from the ocean with the hooks before the ray swims majestically away.
