Coast Guard swimmer rescues family off Florida coast

Four boaters were rescued off the coast of Florida by a member of the Coast Guard who pulled the family's boat to safety.

The two adults and two young children, ages five and eight, were stranded on a boat stuck in mangroves for hours off the coast of Charlotte County.

Crews used a Jaw Hawk helicopter to lower a rescue swimmer into the water, who then pulled the boat to safety.

No one was hurt.
