ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - The United Sates Coast Guard is always ready to help sailors and boaters in distress.
It's not very often they're called on to rescue sea life -- like a giant sea turtle!
The Coast Guard dispatched a rescue team from Cape May, New Jersey, to rescue the marine reptile off the coast.
A boater saw the animal struggling after it became trapped and tangled in fishing lines.
A coast guard crewman climbed in the water alongside the turtle and carefully removed the knotted mess.
The sea turtle swam away safely after escaping the entangled lines.
