'Incredibly Heroic' Fisherman Jumps Off Pier to Save Sea Turtle
December 7, 2017
There were some tense moments after a sea turtle became entangled in a fishing line off a Florida pier. "Most likely this animal would have had hundreds of feet of fishing line around him," fisherman Donald Zinn said. "It was wrapped around his neck, one of his fins." Another fisherman bravely leapt into the water, and after several minutes, he used wire clippers to free the turtle. "This was an incredibly heroic act," Zinn said.
