A young child and her family were stuck on a crippled sailboat hundreds of miles off the coast of Mexico when she became seriously ill, but Navy rescuers were able to locate the family and bring the baby back to a stable condition.
The one-year-old daughter became ill fifteen days into a "world cruise" the family had planned on taking together - the mother, father and two daughters.
The Coast Guard responded to their call, sent Air National Guardsmen to parachute down to the family and provided aid and safety back shore - where they are currently headed.
A YouTube video from 2013 provided footage of the family happily sailing in the Pacific. That's how a concerned aunt was able to keep track of the young baby and follow the journey as Navy officials responded to the family's distressed call.
