    Two men were locked in a struggle with an octopus for almost three minutes to free one of them from its tentacles and release the creature back into the sea.

    The author of the video Giuseppe Tortorella and his friend Roberto were travelling on a boat from the Italian town of Torre del Greco to Naples when Roberto decided to go underwater hunting in a wetsuit. An octopus reportedly attached (stuck) itself to Roberto's equipment when he was trying to catch fish. At first, it was on his arm, but it later moved when the man came to the surface.
