SAN DIEGO (KGO) -- A sea turtle that was rescued off the Oregon coast is catching a ride back to San Diego on a Coast Guard training flight.
The turtle is named Solstice.
In December, Solstice was found dehydrated with a body temperature 15 degrees below normal.
It was one of half a dozen turtles caught in cold currents.
Solstice, an endangered olive ridley turtle, was taken to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport.
It is being airlifted on a C-130 to finish her rehabilitation at SeaWorld in San Diego.
It will be released this summer.
