A family of four — including two young children — are recovering after their boat capsized in Brevard County, Florida.
Emergency crews responded to the Indian River near the Hubert Humphrey Bridge at 10:40 p.m. Friday after receiving multiple 911 calls reporting an overturned boat.
The adults and an infant on board were quickly located. A family on another boat helped pull the victims to safety.
Rescuers stayed in the water for nearly another hour searching for a 23-month-old-girl. She was trapped underneath the overturned boat but managed to stay afloat in a small pocket of air. Officers were able to pull her out safely.
“Thank you for saving my baby,” said Tammy Bossare, the girl’s mother. “And saving our world. I can’t imagine. I just can’t imagine.”
The girl was wearing a life jacket and is in good condition. The family was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
