On a recent sailing trip off the coast of Honduras, Miguel Angel Escobar and his family encountered a heartbreaking situation. They saw a giant sea turtle entangled in some tree roots close to the water’s edge there, along a desolate section of the coast.
The turtle seemed not to be actually gone, she had recently given up. And there was a promise on the horizon.
Even though the turtle appeared to have been imprisoned there for some time and probably had already died, Escobar decided to examine it closely just in case.
In spite of his efforts, she didn’t move as he pushed the boat onto the shore and walked toward her. After I touched her, she immediately began to sigh and move her head, Escobar stated.
After slashing the turtle’s root captor several times with his knife, Escobar finally managed to break it. She was eventually released after a short while.
Supernatural power instantly transformed the turtle into something that appeared to be lifeless before.
“I thought that the turtle would need to rest on the shore and recover her strength,” Escobar noted. “But she instantly swam away, strong and fast, like someone who was jumping for joy.”
As a result, she was given a second chance. A turtle, having lingered for a while near the beach, swam out to deeper waters after briefly resting on the shore.
It is believed that the turtle got trapped in a root after coming ashore to lay eggs, getting entangled in the roots while passing over an embankment along the shore. And now that she is free, she will continue to produce offspring for many generations to come.
“I feel happy to have helped her,” Escobar expressed. “It’s a great feeling.”
