Streetcar driver Serhat Topal faced an unexpected moment! He saw a turtle trying to cross the tracks toward the countryside.
Not just that but Serhat noticed that the turtle was stuck. Topal thought that the turtle was so scared.
He could have continued on his way, leaving the trapped turtle in that perilous spot.
But no, he stopped to give the turtle a hand.
Then Serhat approached the turtle — lifting him over a barrier fence to continue on his way unhindered.
Everyone was thrilled and enthusiastic about his kind act. He saved the turtle’s life.
All the while, a security camera was recording as the sweet scene unfolded:
“The turtle looked healthy,” Topal said. “He walked away, escaping being crushed [by another streetcar]. I am very happy.”
