Manatee gets special wetsuit after accident
Device to help manatee stay afloat
SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. – A mother manatee received a special gift for Mother's Day after she was rescued by teams at SeaWorld.
The manatee was hit by a boat and suffered a collapsed lung and was having trouble floating. She was rescued in waters near Satellite Beach.
In order to help her heal, workers gave her a special wetsuit to help keep her afloat.
SeaWorld teams hope to release the mom and her calf back into the wild later this year.
