Key West Police Officer Randy Perez responded to a unique call Monday night: a baby turtle rescue.
The tiny turtles hatched on the beach at the Pier House. But instead of heading to the water, they began trekking across the wooden decking of the closed restaurant.
With the help and direction of Samantha from the Key West Wildlife Rescue Center, the turtles were safely redirected back to the ocean and life ahead.
