Man resuscitates lifeless sea turtle on new episode of 'The Island'

One man went to great lengths to save a badly injured sea turtle, and his incredible effort can be seen on the latest episode of NBC's "The Island."

Benji Lanpher and Matt Getz were catching fish when the sea turtle accidentally drifted into their net. Getz was quick to release the turtle, but noticed it was lifeless and gasping for air. Eager to save the protected species, Lanpher followed his instinct and administered CPR.

"I swore it was dead, and then the turtle started moving and actually turned himself down the sand into the water," he says in the clip above.
