Turtle freed from fishing lines by good Samaritans

Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) - And "freedom" is exactly what a creature on the Big Island received after being rescued by a father and son.

Joseph Nozawa senior and his son were on a crabbing trip in Hilo when they spotted the struggling turtle tangled in heavy fishing line.

After several failed attempts, Joseph senior jumped in and brought the turtle to the surface. Then Joe junior brought the turtle to shore.

They then cut all the fishing line off, carried the turtle back to the ocean and he swam away.
