CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program is releasing three sea turtles Friday, bringing their total number of turtles released to 198.

Grace, Cherry, and Swash are being released at the Isle of Palms County Park at 10 a.m.

Representatives for the aquarium say the turtles are back to full health after receiving treatment. They say the turtles were quickly treated and prepared for release because their sea turtle hospital needs room for new patients.

The public is invited to attend the release, but should expect to pay for parking.
