VIDEO: Injured Lemon shark nudges diver for help

Shark asks diver for help (WFLA photo)

JUPITER, Fla. (WFLA) – A group of divers off the coast of Jupiter may have made a new best friend during a recent dive.

Video shows a Lemon shark swimming up to them to nudge and bump them, as if it was asking for help. As it turns out, the shark had a hook in its belly.

One of the divers was able to pull the hook out. As a thank you, the shark and a few others put on a show for the camera by swimming around in circles. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
