PHOTOS: Turtle rescued from net by divers

A group of divers saved a distressed turtle from a slow death after untangling it from a large clump of fish netting. Theresa Guise, 60, from Indianapolis, took the photos of her fellow divers coming the turtle's rescue. She said: "We were looking for blue whales in our boat when we discovered a large clump of fishnet and other material. Peter de Maagt and Alex Mustard, my fellow scuba divers, and I got in the water to look at it and found a turtle trapped. Alex held the turtle so that it could reach the surface and easily breathe, and this also prevented it from fighting the rescue - it was panicking and thrashing about, clearly frightened. Peter used a knife to cut the turtle out of the netting and then Alex guided the turtle back to safety." (Caters News)
