Firefighters rescue massive sea turtle from resident’s back porch

Firefighters in Florida responded to a resident’s home to relocate a giant sea turtle that showed up on the back porch.

Brevard County Fire Rescue said in a Facebook post that the Station 64 crew responded to a Melbourne Beach home Tuesday when a resident reported a massive sea turtle had taken up residence on the back porch.

“Using equipment from Engine 64 that is commonly used to move heavy objects, the crew safely moved the turtle off of the porch and back to the beach where it peacefully returned to the ocean,” the post said.

Brevard County Fire Rescue conducted another sea turtle rescuer earlier this month when a 200-pound turtle became stuck under a boardwalk at Satellite Beach.
