Dr. Shane Boylan, with the S.C. Aquarium Sea  Turtle Hospital in Charleston, attempts to insert a tracheal tube to  help a turtle named "Amelia" breathe on Jan. 8, 2014. The juvenile green sea turtle was found stranded in  the marshes of Hilton Head Island having a "hypothermic reaction," or an  exposure to cold water temperatures for long periods of time which  decreases the heart rate and circulation and can cause death.
