When a wild animal is in trouble, the effort to save them usually becomes very tricky. They don’t want to feel cornered, and they don’t know whom to trust. Luckily, there is often one brave person there to help — or in this case, those brave people.

A few beachgoers in Oahu, Hawaii, noticed that a sea turtle was swimming strangely in the water. She was only using one flipper and was moving quite slowly.

Then they spotted a fishing line coiled around her body, wrapping her head and right flipper.

They couldn’t stand to watch the poor creature struggling anymore. For hours, person after person tried to break the sea turtle free with no luck.

Then they had an idea. One man finally grabbed her and started swimming.

All the beachgoers involved worked together to take the animal and move straight to the shore, where they had air and open space to remove the fishing line properly.

Once they cut the line, the sea turtle was finally free from her plight. The crew of dedicated humans released her back into the ocean.
