200-pound turtle rescued from under Florida beach boardwalk

Firefighters in Florida came to the rescue of a 200-pound turtle found stuck under a boardwalk on a beach.

Brevard County Fire Rescues said the Station 64 crew responded to a report from a member of the public about a turtle stuck under a boardwalk at Satellite Beach.

Firefighters said the 200-pound turtle was lined up with a narrow hole and just needed a little guidance and a push to get back out into the open.

Turtle rescuers arrived on the scene and helped the animal return to the water, firefighters said.

A photo of the rescuers and the freed turtle was posted to Satellite Beach’s Facebook page.
