Diver Mohammed Hassan said that the dolphin was observed in the Grand Erg Occidental of Hurghada, an area that many bottlenose dolphins inhabit. The diver requested a quick intervention by the association to rescue the dolphin. Hassan warned that the hook could remain in the dolphin’s mouth for several days.
Several divers requested that the dolphin be injected with anesthesia to facilitate its capture.
