Manatees Rescued After Irma Sucks Water Out of Sarasota Bay


Over the weekend, Hurricane Irma made its way north through the state of Florida bringing with it strong winds, tornadoes, and flooding.

"One wasn't moving, the other was breathing and had water in its eyes", Sechler said in a Facebook post.

In a Facebook post, Michale Sechler said he went to the bay with some friends to check out the phenomenon when they noticed two large objects lying in the mud.

Michael Sechler wrote of how he had to call in for help after seeing the creatures as they were too heavy to move back out to deeper water.

However, he said the commission is anxious that the manatees could end up in areas where they naturally wouldn't once the tide comes back, but he doesn't think they will get injured.

"We're not actually intervening at this point", Gordon told the local newspaper Bradenton Herald. So they turned to social media. "We couldn't just let those manatees die out there".

"I was amazed how many people started sharing the story".

"It shows what people can do when they come together".

Twitter users had high praise for the manatees' rescuers.

Florida Power and Light reported more than 100,000 of its customers were without power in Manatee County Monday morning.

Some Good Samaritans found the manatees and attempted to move them on their own. Instead, report the location to the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline 1-888-404-3922.

The animals swam off into the water once they were rescued, according to witnesses.
