Rescued 655-pound sea turtle given a lift back into the water9/24/2012
You might not think that watching a 655-pound leatherback sea turtle waddle around a boat could be an emotional experience -- but we guarantee your opinion will change once you've seen this video. The massive seven-foot turtle was stranded on Cape Cod last week and then rescued by staff at the New England Aquarium. Now fully on the mend, the turtle was transported back to the sea, where he was released. Get a look at the faces of the aquarium workers after the turtle disappears into the water -- you get the sense that they were waiting for him to swim to the surface and wave a flipper in farewell, but apparently that only happens in Disney movies.
