The South Carolina Aquarium on Tuesday released several sea turtles back into ocean off the coast of Florida.

The turtles had been at the sea turtle hospital facility in Charleston since November 2014. They had suffered from cold stunning, which is like hypothermia and can kill sea turtles.

The release took place at Cape Canaveral, Fla., because water temperatures are warm enough there this time of year.
