Diver Attempts to Save Turtle Stuck in Discarded Fishing Line

Occurred on August 11, 2020 / Oahu, Hawaii, USA

Info: "I went on a solo dive today and about 200 yards from shore I saw this turtle being held down and tangled up on at least 50ft worth of fishing line that was stuck on the reef. The turtle was floating at about 25ft underwater. Unfortunately, I was too late to save this turtle and it was unresponsive and drowned. Please everyone if you are going to drone out bait or send bait out that far please do your best to get all of it back, this post is to spread awareness of the dangers that fishing line, lures, trash and it’s effects on Hawaii’s ocean habitat."
