Hurricane Irma left a disaster behind after it attacked the Caribbean and Florida, including Cuba, Saint Martin, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Miami. The Category 5 natural disaster was the most powerful Atlantic hurricane observed in over a decade.
Despite hurricanes being a total mess, they tend to bring out the best of humanity. This was the case on Sunday, Sept. 10 in Sarasota, Fla., after two beached manatees were stranded in Sarasota Bay. According to Bradenton Herald, the manatees were caught in extreme low tide created by Irma.
Michael Sechler shared a heartbreaking post on Facebook, describing how one manatee wasn't moving and the other had water in his eyes.
Shortly after the post went viral, the manatees received the help they deserved from local Floridians, including two Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputies, who moved the manatees around 100 yards closer to the water.
If the following photos and video don't restore your faith in humanity, I don't know what else will.
