SYDNEY, Australia –¬†Fishermen aboard a boat in Australia’s Middle Harbor captured the moment a whale came to them for help.

Ivan Iskenderian was fishing when the enormous whale approached their boat, 7 Network reports.

“It was just lifting its head up and it had a bit of plastic bag and some fishing line on its head,” Iskenderian said.

In the video, you see the whale swim right up to the boat and raise it’s head gently toward Iskenderian, as if asking for help.

Iskenderian reached out an pulled off the garbage. As the whale swims away, he raises a fin out of the water, almost like he was thanking the fishermen.

Watch the incredible video above.
