Two turtles rescued by surfers

Two turtles were rescued by surfers in the sea close to the roundabout near the port of Vueltas in Valle Gran Rey on La Gomera on Sunday. They were encountered by the surfers just a short distance offshore where the turtles were being tossed about by the waves stuck in a small piece of old and torn netting. The surfers brought them ashore, disentangled them and kept them wet with buckets of seawater. The department for the environment was informed who came to collect the marine reptiles. They will now be nursed until they regain their strength before being released into the sea again. 
See video below by Juan Jose Barrera which incidentally also shows one of several showers Valle Gran Rey experienced last Sunday:
