A manatee has a new lease on life thanks to some St. Lucie County Fire District firefighters.

Late Saturday afternoon, fire rescue was called to help deputies with the St.Lucie County Sheriff's Office rescue a manatee on Indian River Drive, the fire district said. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Harbor Branch were also on scene.

The firefighters were dispatched to help carry the manatee up the bank.
