(Scroll down for video) A group of divers spotted a shark that had a thick rope wrapped around it.

The shark was seen near the Socorro Island, about 250 miles south of Baja, Mexico.

The rope must have been on the shark for a while since the rope left strong marks on its body.

The gray nurse sharks are listed as critically endangered species. They are seen mainly up and down the east coast of Australia.

At the time of the rescue the divers spotted about 40 of these sharks in the area.

One of the divers was able to cut the shark free and it was all caught on camera.
