This is the heartwarming moment fishermen released two stingrays that were caught in their net in southern Thailand.

Footage shows the workers opening up the net to pull the marine creatures out and throw them back into the sea in Phang Nga province on March 2.

One of the fishermen said the stingrays were a by-catch and they only could sell fish so they always return them to the water.

He said: ‘Fortunately, the stingrays were not hurt and they were alive. They swam back into the deep after they were freed.’
