SNELLVILLE, Ga. -- 11Alive photojournalist David Brooks was on assignment with Bill Liss of the Help Desk at Snellville Middle School, when a large turtle fell off of a landscape vehicle, landing right in front of them on Pate Road.

As the turtle turned back toward the road and instant death, Brooks picked him up and loaded him into the back of their WXIA minivan. He and Liss headed toward Lake Lucerne, where Brooks released an excited and frantic animal back into a natural habitat.
