Mom, son swept out to sea on swan float

Mum and son drift kilometres off shore on inflatable swan

Mum and son drift kilometres off shore on inflatable swan

Tara Myers said she and her 7-year-old son, Brennan, were on a huge inflatable swan raft on October 21 when Myers said she mistakenly thought the apparently calm water wouldn't pose a hazard, according to WFLA-Ch.

"I have never been more scared in my entire life", she says.

It was supposed to be a day like any other, one where she and her son, Brennan, would spend time together.

A Florida mother thought she and her son were going to die when the giant swan float they were aboard was carried miles out to sea last month.

"I was just exhausted and we were not going anywhere", she said, adding that her paddling efforts only managed to move the float incrementally.

That's why Twitter CEO met Rahul Gandhi
As for the anticipated edit button, it's now being worked on so when it does arrive, it's everything we need. In order to do that, the company put out a request for proposals on how to measure "Twitter Health Metrics".

"But the current was so strong, it kept pushing us back".

At one point, Myers panicked and tried paddling back toward dry land - to no avail.

Thankfully people on the beach did see how far they had drifted and called emergency services. "So hard. Because this could have ended so much worse and I didn't want him to know that I was that scared", she said.

They burst a hole in the swan, deflated it and threw it into a dumpster. "To put yourselves in that type of position", Myers told WFLA, in a warning to others about using giant inflatable rafts on the ocean.
