 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.”
