PORT DICKSON: We often hear of firemen being called in to rescue pets like cats or to snare snakes that have intruded into homes, but in the resort town here, they were called to perform an unusual task.

They had to rescue a turtle which somehow got lost and ended getting stuck in a garbage trap at the Tuanku Ja'afar Power Station on Tuesday (July 16).
