A rescued green sea turtle recovers from its wounds

The saga of the green sea turtles is an only-in-L.A.-story. Our reporter, Louis Sahagun, got word of a colony of the large, federally-endangered animals living in, of all places, the San Gabriel River. One of the turtles, wounded by fishermen using hooks and spears, was brought to the Aquarium of the Pacific for emergency care and rehab. The video shows the extent of the turtle's injuries and wounds, and the course of the successful cure. More details in Louis' full story here.
