Officials rescue manatee from storm drain in Florida

(WHDH) — Officials made a rare rescue after a massive manatee got caught in a storm drain in Florida.

Construction workers spotted the 950-pound animal was trapped Wednesday morning.

It took crews six hours to pull the manatee out.

The animal was eventually taken to Sea World. Workers ran tests to make sure it was doing okay.

Sea World says it will continue to monitor the manatee’s health over the next several days.
