So, they landed their airplane into the water to come to his rescue. The rescuers had no idea how he got stuck but they knew that he needed help. One of the rescuers kneeled down at the edge of the plane and grabbed the yellow net.

He tugged on it to pull the turtle closer to him and onto the plane. They tried and tried to untangle the poor creature but without a knife they simply could not free him.

So, the rescuers had to wait until they pulled in to port to use a knife to cut away at the trash. The rescuers had to be extremely careful because they did not want to accidentally injure the sea turtle. After a few cuts, the turtle was finally free! They checked out his flipper and determined that with time he would heal so they set him free. The turtle was returned back into the water and swam away happily.
