Ocean Heroics: Dramatic Rescue as Sea Turtle Receives Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation, Freed from Entangled Fishing Nets on the Island

A dying sea turtle was rescued with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on Monday’s episode of The Island With Bear Grylls.

The NBC survival competition show features 14 men who attempt to survive on a deserted island while taping their adventure themselves.

‘I automatically feel horrible about it,’ said 31-year-old contestant Benji Lanpher after finding the trapped turtle with fellow contestants Matt Getz and Graham Sheldon.

Getz quickly freed the sea turtle but it was severely fatigued from being trapped and appeared lifeless as it gasped for air on the beach.

‘I’m about to give him CPR. I’m about to blow air down his mouth,’ Lanpher said.
