As Hurricane Irma rumbled up Florida's west coast, it drained water from the state's shores, leaving residents stunned and manatees stranded. Sechler said he posted pictures of the stranded manatees hoping rescue workers or wildlife officials would respond.

The county sheriff said on twitter that two of his deputies assisted in the rescue.

"One wasn't moving, the other was breathing and had water in its eyes". "We called every service we could think of, but no one answered", one member of the group writes on Facebook.

Residents in the Sarasota area posted photos on social media Sunday showing a pair of manatees that had been beached when the oncoming Hurricane Irma caused the tide to recede in advance of its arrival in the area.

In a Facebook post, Michale Sechler said he went to the bay with some friends to check out the phenomenon when they noticed two large objects lying in the mud.

The 'tees reportedly "swam off" once they were back in the ocean and hopefully have a strong enough constitution to shake off such a harrowing experience.

"We're not actually intervening at this point", Gordon told the local newspaper Bradenton Herald.

"We just let nature take its course", she said.

By the time it reached Manatee County late Sunday, it had been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane. It was an "absolutely amazing" rescue and "shows what people can do when they come together", says Faradini-Campos.
