Flights delayed at JFK airport as turtles wander onto runway

Passengers at the JFK airport on Friday were delayed for an interesting reason that didn’t include inclement weather as a reason. According to reports, around 40 Diamondback Terrapin turtles had made their way onto the runway at one of the world’s busiest airports and caused short delays for a number of flights.

Every year, around this time, the turtles make their way to the sandy shores near the airport to nest and lay their eggs. A lot of the times, the turtles wander onto the runway. While the turtles were safely removed, some flights were delayed but affected passengers were not too annoyed with the delays.
