This is the moment a group of fishermen rescues three turtles and a bird which were caught in an abandoned fishing equipment.

The video, captured off the coast of Monterrico in Guatemala, shows the men cutting the sea animals free with a knife.

The filmer writes: ''While motoring and fishing approximately 25 miles off the coast of Guatemala, we came across a fishing tackle that was abandoned or lost by a commercial fisherman.

''There were three turtles and a booby that had got snagged in the ball of twine and hooks.

''We freed the animals, fished around the snarl for a short time and then hauled the trash aboard Quiteña.''
