His neighbor spotted George on a street near Hughes' home and had just gotten out to retrieve him with another car ran the tortoise over. Luckily for George and Hughes', this wasn't the end of their story. 

Hughes' found Dr. Susan Kelleher of Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital, a famous veterinarian near his town who constructed George a 3D shell to protect his internal organs and save the tortoise.
