Rescuers heaved a massive sea turtle back into the ocean after it got stuck on a Florida beachfront patio
The turtle was disoriented and couldn’t figure out how to leave the patio, so Brevard County Fire Rescue personnel helped haul the turtle back to the water.
“After hours of being stuck on the patio the turtle made her way back to the ocean after being carried in a harness away from the home and over the dunes,” the preservation society said.
“Summer is a busy time for Florida beaches with both people and sea turtles sharing the sand,” the agency website reads. “Though turtle nesting and hatching usually happens in the middle of the night, it is very possible for humans to cross paths with nesting females or hatchlings on their way to the sea.”
