A Thanksgiving Day rescue as Maui surfers save a sea turtle

Glenn Sturhann was riding waves with his friends James Williams and Justin Ramsey in Kihei on Maui Thursday morning when they saw a sea turtle struggling to breathe.

The surfers put the turtle on Sturhann’s board and took it to shore while Tommy Cutt, the surfers’ friend who works for the MOC Marine Institute helped cut the fishing line that was choking the turtle.

Eventually, the turtle was released back into the ocean, tangle free.
