Ocean Diver (“O.D.”): 330-lb adult male Green. Stranded in 2007 in North Carolina where he was named “Pepper.” He came in to the Turtle Hospital with a lung infection, was treated and released. The infection returned while in the wild causing the lung to collapse. By the time O.D. stranded in the Keys in 2008, the lung tissue had fused together. Unfortunately, his ailment is inoperable and irreparable. As he cannot inflate the collapsed lung, the other lung overcompensates causing O.D. to float on his side. Weights help to offset this buoyancy. - http://www.turtlehospital.org
