Teen Swimmers Rescued by a Boat with a Special Name
Tyler and Heather decided to go for a swim off of Vilano Beach, Florida. Their plan was to swim to an offshore island but the powerful current pulled them away. Then they tried to make it to a lighthouse, but they were pulled further out to sea. They linked arms and floated to conserve energy, and they prayed. Thirty minutes after their prayer, they were rescued by a boat named, “Amen.” Sometimes our prayers are answered quickly, sometimes it takes a while. This answer came in the nick of time.
Quick Thinking and Skill on a Crane Rescues 14 People

37 Spotted Seal Pups Rescued and Released
Found by police three months ago, the seal pups had been captured by traffickers in China to be sold to aquariums, shops and other commercial venues. Eight suspects were arrested as spotted seals are “now a protected species in China.”
The article gave me a jolt of sadness because all the seal pups could not be saved, but at least 37 were saved and released. Kudos and commendations to the officers who rescued them and the people who cared for released them!
I wish I could’ve found a video with these spotted pups being released, but we can use our imaginations.
Here’s an alternative video of harbor seal pups being released a couple of years ago.
