Nov. 15 (UPI) -- A group of friends out fishing off the coast of Guatemala rescued a sea turtle they found caught in a discarded plastic basket.
Carey Chen, 52, recorded video when she and friends Danilo Carmeno and Ridge Murphy spotted the turtle stuck in the plastic basket while they were participating in a Casa Vieja Lodge charity fishing tournament.
"I saw the yellow basket in the distance which was moving, so I told the captain to turn back," Chen wrote of the experience. "As we got closer, I could see a turtle trapped in the basket."
The video shows the friends pull the turtle from the water and remove the basket from its body.
