Bailey, an adult Hawksbill, is the newest patient at the Turtle Hospital. Bailey was rescued by the Horizon Dive Center based in Key Largo. The divers observed Bailey swimming with little to no use from the front right flipper. The rescuers were able to locate a hook embedded in the right shoulder/armpit area on Bailey. After entering care at the hospital, Dr. Doug Mader was able to perform surgery to remove the lodged hook from the wound site. Bailey is now recuperating at the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
