A group of swimmers at a Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., beach had some special company in the water on Sunday: five or six manatees, swimming amongst them in the shallow waters by the shore.
"It was not only a miracle, it was a gift," Gina Hossack told the Sun Sentinel. "It made us feel amazing that we were able to witnesses such a thing, who gets to see something like that?"
The manatees reportedly hung around the area, which was cleared by lifeguards, for about 30 minutes before heading back out to deeper waters.
Hossack snapped photos while her husband, Craig, used his iPhone to capture the incredible manatee video below. "Wow, that's awesome," he can be heard saying on the video, as delighted fellow witnesses squeal with delight.
