Hawksbill in a barrel

Ta Phet brought me a turtle stuck in a plastic barrel that he found on the beach this afternoon.  It must have squeezed itself inside, and there was no way to easily pull it back out, though it does not look like that from the photo. So I cut the bottom off the barrel. It was already partly split, which I guess is why it did not drown.
It was thin, but not as thin as some sick turtles I’ve seen.  It seemed surprisingly strong, and so I released it back into the sea. It was lucky.
