HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

In the Lowcountry, several firefighters helped rescue a Loggerhead sea turtle on Tuesday morning.

She laid her eggs Tuesday morning in a nest on Hilton Head Island, but she took a wrong turn and ended up in the dunes instead of the ocean.

A sea turtle protection manager for the Coastal Discovery Museum spotted her and called the fire department. It took four firefighters to carry her back to the water's edge.
