Multiple Manatees Rescued from Satellite Beach Storm Drain

As many as nineteen manatees were rescued tonight in an hours-long effort by SeaWorld rescue teams working with local police and fire crews as well as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. The manatees stranded in a storm drain pipe while trying to escape cold weather, and became stuck in the narrow drain passageway. All of the rescued manatees were given health check-ups on site, and transported to a nearby pond where they were released.
