Men Attempt Rescue of Manatees Trapped After Hurricane Irma Drains Bay

Two manatees are rescued from Sarasota Bay when the water receded

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

Two manatees were rescued by Good Samaritans on Sunday after Hurricane Irma sucked the water out of a Florida bay and caused them to become stranded on dry land. Michael Sechler of Sarasota, Florida, saw these stranded creatures beached where formerly there was water and took action to save them.

Marcelo Clavijo was also part of the group of people who helped save the manatees.

Thanks to their quick thinking, the manatees, caught in the sudden and brutal effects of Irma, were able to swim away from their predicament unscathed.

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 gave them as much water as we could, hoping the rain and storm surge come soon enough to save them", Sechler said.
