A video is being shared on Facebook showing a Maltese man rescuing a turtle which got tangled into some discarded plastic.
Redeemer Grima, who uploaded the video, said the turtle was encountered yesterday morning and after some treatment, managed to save its life.
“At least we manage to save this turtle life this morning. Please don’t throw garbage all over the seas,” he wrote on Facebook in a desperate plea to put an end to these sort of incidents.
The turtle seemed to be tangled in a whole web of plastic cuttings. Even after the plastic was removed from the turtle’s paws, the creature struggled to swim away as it was still swollen from its injury.
