Giant Sea Turtle Falls Into Cooling Tank

2018-04-10 16:50
What do you do when a turtle gets trapped? And what if the trapped turtle weighs almost as much as a grown man? This loggerhead sea turtle fell into a cooling tank at a chemical plant in Brindisi, Italy, on April 9. Local firefighters had to send a dive team to coax the massive sea creature into a net so it could be lifted out of the cooling tank with a crane. A tweet from the fire department, the Vigili del Fuoco, reported that the turtle was taken to a veterinarian for examination, and when it was found to be healthy, was released back into the ocean.
