BOSTON — The Coast Guard rescued an entangled sea turtle Sunday after it got tangled in a lobster pot off Cuttyhunk Island.

A fisherman contacted Coast Guard Station Menemsha around 12:30 p.m., reporting the distressed turtle.

A 29-foot response boat crew from Station Menemsha launched with a member from the Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources.

They arrived on scene and freed the animal, which swam away safely.
