A young spear fisherman from Key West, Florida who was lost at sea for four hours survived the terrifying ordeal after his family miraculously spotted him in the dark and rescued him.
The 22-year-old Dylan Gartenmeyer was drift diving with his friends when he suddenly found himself lost at sea. As he was diving, the Gulf Stream pulled him away from their boat and from the coast. The Coast Guard and some rescue teams came to the scene to search through the sea for Dylan. However, after hours of looking for him, they weren’t able to find him.
After receiving the terrifying news, his family wasted no time and acted quickly to save Dylan. They immediately got on their grandfather’s boat and went to his last known coordinates.
“Got a horrible phone call yesterday that Dyl had gone diving and hadn’t been seen for two hours! After calling the fam together we hopped on the contender and had the scariest boat ride of our life out to his last known coordinates. God was definitely on our side because as soon as we stopped running out and started looking, we spotted him right away at almost the exact coordinates we were given,” Priscilla Gartenmayer, Dylan’s cousin, wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.
Miraculously, after four hours of being lost in the dark sea, they were able to rescue Dylan. His family knew it was God who led him to where he is, they knew that they have just witnessed a miracle.
“It definitely had to be a miracle. It had to be God protecting him the whole time, our angels above,” Tabby, Dylan’s mother said in an interview with Today.
The emotional and miraculous rescue was caught on camera. In the video, Dylan’s family was seen rejoicing as they spotted where he was.
