Turtle flight! Reporter Todd Corillo here. Photographer Matt Sonsalla and I went to Elizabeth City, NC for a very special story.

We were with the Coast Guard on a flight to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to pick up 35 cold-stunned sea turtles.

We also accompanied the turtles to Orlando, Florida where they will go to “new homes for the holidays.”
