CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - A crew from Sea World brought a boat down from San Antonio to help rescue cold-stunned sea turtles in the back bays of Corpus Christi Tuesday.

As temperatures drop, sea turtles that are stuck in shallower waters tend to become cold-stunned and drift. With the freezing temperatures that moved into the Coastal Bend this week, there are many cold-stunned turtles out there.

As of around 1 p.m. Tuesday, the Sea World crew had already rescued dozens of cold-stunned turtles.
