The crew of Station 64 rescued the turtle Tuesday morning in Melbourne Beach, according to the Brevard County Fire Rescue.
The crew used equipment commonly used to move heavy objects, and the sea turtle peacefully returned to the ocean, the county said in a Facebook post.
Earlier this month, firefighters from the same station rescued a 200-pound sea turtle.
The crew was notified that the turtle was stuck under a boardwalk. The turtle was lined up with a narrow hole, and it just needed “a little push to get through.”
