    This is an amazing effort but I'm just curious. How did it get there in the first place? Would the tide have eventually come in enough for it to float up on its own? Did this couple inadvertently cause the turtle more stress, not less?

    In my area when the turtles come to the beach they sometimes get trapped in the rocks because the surface is uneven and it makes them "slip" into a crevice from which they cannot get out of, ill take a wild guess the same happened here.

    While im sure the Turtle was stressed i would still argue its worth the risk to try and getting him out, leaving him there is a death sentence.
