Fishermen save giant leatherback sea turtle stuck in net

This is the heartwarming moment fishermen saved a giant leatherback sea turtle stuck in a net in Thailand.

The workers were trawling for fish when the marine creature was spotted trying to escape their net off the coast of Ko Adang island in Satun province on December 24.

They pulled the net together to take the animal out and pushed it back to the ocean. It took at least ten fishermen to safely return the turtle to the water.

Fisherman Kritsanakorn Janlakorn said: ‘We were fishing just like any other day but then we spotted a big turtle stuck in the net so I asked the others to help free it.’
