CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The South Carolina Aquarium's turtle hospital just broke a record.

The hospital is now treating 20 sea turtles, the most it has ever had at once.

The record was set after the 20th turtle was brought to the hospital this week.

A fisherman accidentally hooked "Taylor" the turtle off the Folly Beach pier.

Taylor had some lesions and was dehydrated.

He is expected to stay at the hospital for about a month.

Taylor got his name from the pier where he was found. The official name of the Folly Pier is the Edwin S. Taylor pier.
