PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) - Authorities have rescued a sea turtle from an Oregon coast beach for the second time in a week.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport is caring for both turtles.

A couple walking along the beach in Waldport spotted the second turtle Saturday and called the aquarium.

State parks ranger Doug Sestrich carried the animal to safety.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium advises anyone who finds a stranded sea turtle not to touch or move the animal, and instead call the Marine Mammal Stranding Network at 866-767-6114. Mammal network officials will coordinate a recovery of the reptile to the nearest sea turtle rehabilitation facility.
