    I am a journalist covering this story. There were actually three children rescued here. Two were female and one was male, along with the four men. All of which are very thankful to Shane Moore, the rescuer who pulled them all out.

  5. WOW!! As a “Coastie Mom” I am sooo proud of all of you brave men and women– ESPECIALLY you rescue swimmers! What an amazing rescue!

    Bravo to the great work of the USCG and Air Rescue teams in particular. I worked at the USCG MIA Air Rescue Station as civilian medical provider about 5 years ago. I love these Coasties! Greatest bunch of folks I have ever had the privilege of caring for and working with.
