(TheConservativeNews.org) – While a shark attack resulting in death ranks really low, at about a 1 in 3.75 million chance, a swimmer is more likely to die from drowning in the water surrounding them. But attacks do happen, and it’s one of the biggest fears for some people. When a shark threatened the space of two divers in Hawaii, a dolphin came to their rescue.
Kayleigh Grant went diving off the coast of Kailua-Kona, HI, along with a companion. In the video she posted to the popular social media app, TikTok, a rough-toothed dolphin comes into view as it joins Grant and her friend for a casual swim.
The video takes a startling turn when an oceanic white tip shark heads toward the divers. Grant added a caption in the video, which quickly went viral with 2.2 million views, that the shark wasn’t aggressive; it was quite the opposite, actually.
Grant noted that the shark was a gentle giant. The diver acknowledged the fact that the dolphin must’ve felt some level of concern as it began to swim around the pair of divers in an apparent attempt to protect them.
The dolphin vocalized and herded the swimmers into what Grant called a ball of safety. The diver noted that neither of them felt they were in danger from the shark but thought it was sweet of the dolphin to care so much.
