TURKEY – The Turkish Coast Guard saved a 10-month-old after she floated out into the ocean nearly a half mile because her parents forgot about her.

According to the Daily Mail, the baby was only kept alive because she was in the pool flotation device.

Several other tourists realized the situation and called the coast guard.

It is unknown if the child was injured, as she was tended to by her mother as soon as she was brought to shore.
