As a mom, I can’t imagine the panic. Your son is lost and in open water. Here is the amazing news.  A young diver lost off the Florida Keys was rescued by his own family.

21 Year old Dylan Gartenmayer was free diving off the Florida Keys when he got caught in a current and couldn’t find his way back.  Four hours go by. Four very scary hours and the sharks were circling.  As each moment went by Dylan didn’t know how long he could hold on or how long he could hold off predators.

Rescue units were dispatched and everyone’s sole focus was finding Dylan and they knew they needed to do it before nightfall for his greatest chance of survival.  Dark is when many predators feed and hunt.  Just as night was about to fall Dylan heard a familiar sound.

With his mind swirling he was able to heard the sound of his grandfather’s boat.  As you can imagine everyone was joyous and relieved that in open water they were able to find Dylan.  To learn more about this story and see the rescue get details here from the Daily Mail.
