A hero diver has saved a young stingray trapped in a net.
Donarun Das, 30, from Pondicherry, India, was diving when he came across a juvenile stingray trapped in the ghost net.
The net, trapping several other marine life as well as the stingray, spanned over 500 metres.
Technical diver Donarun, who manages a dive centre south of India called Temple Adventures, took the footage himself.
He said: “I was solo diving when I came across the net.
“Ghost nets are a real problem here – some of the nets are active, but a lot of them, having their tow lines cut just lie in the bottom.
This one seemed to be an active net.”
