'Am stuck. Need help'.


Accidents happen all the time. Sometimes, you just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Just like this massive green turtle.

Operation Free Turtle

Poor turtle was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
A 150kg female Green (Agar) turtle recently found herself trapped under a fallen tree.

Thankfully for her, a group of Kerteh Fire and Rescue Station firemen rushed to the scene to rescue her.

According to a report by Bernama, the station received a distress call at around 8.20am on Sunday (9 August) after a passerby spotted the poor turtle struggling to free itself from the fallen tree.

Terengganu Fire and Rescue operations centre officer, Senior Assistant Controller Shahrizal Shamsudin, told the news agency that a team of abang-abang bomba was deployed to Pantai Cakar Hutan in Kerteh after receiving a distress call.

“Upon arriving, we found a turtle trapped under a fallen tree. We then cleared a path and cut the tree," he was quoted as saying.

The turtle must be really grateful.
Operation Free Turtle took around an hour to be completed as the turtle was successfully freed at around 10am, Shahrizal said.

“The turtle was successfully freed and was not injured. We then released it back to the sea,” he told Bernama.

The turtle must have been so relieved after the load was lifted off her back!
