A man finds a ‘dead’ sea turtle trapped on land and revives her

Miguel Angel Escobar and his family were just sailing off the coast of Honduras when they noticed something that instantly crushed their hearts.

They saw a large sea turtle entangled in some tree roots close to the water’s edge there, along a desolate section of shore.

Escobar stated in an interview: “I assumed she was dead. We were really sorry for her.

But the turtle wasn’t actually gone. She had recently given up.

But there was promise on the horizon.


Escobar chose to take a closer look just in case, despite the fact that the turtle looked to have been imprisoned there for some time and had probably already died.

He pushed the boat on the shore and walked toward her, but she made no move.

She immediately sighed and began to move her head when I touched her, according to Escobar.

Escobar then immediately took action.


Escobar started hacking away at the turtle’s root captor with a knife until it became weak enough to break.

She was eventually released after a short while.

She had been saved by Escobar.

The turtle, which had before appeared to be dead, instantly changed into a ball of energy.

Escobar also had this to say: “I believed that the turtle would need to refuel on the shore. But she immediately swam away, powerful and swift, like she was jubilant.

She was given another opportunity. The turtle briefly lingered on the beach before swimming off to deeper seas.


Escobar thinks the turtle got stuck after coming ashore to deposit her eggs and got caught in the root while crossing the embankment near the sea. There will be even more generations of her descendants when she is free.

Escobar stated, “I feel glad to have assisted her. It’s a wonderful sensation.”
