Two manatees were rescued by Good Samaritans on Sunday after Hurricane Irma sucked the water out of a Florida bay and caused them to become stranded on dry land.

Another Floridian, Marcelo Clavijo, also posted about finding the manatees, saying the group put the animals onto tarps and dragged them into the water.

The entire thing was caught on video. Then he spotted two stranded manatees. But it may not have come quickly enough for the manatees.

"Believe me, we tried to move them", wrote Sechler's friend, Steven Reisinger, in his own Facebook post.

He gave the manatees water to help, he wrote.

The U.S. Hurricane Center has sent out an urgent alert warning of a "life-threatening storm surge inundation of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 5 meters) above ground level" and telling people to "MOVE AWAY FROM THE WATER!"

"We had to do something about it", said Tony Faradini-Campos of Sarasota. So they turned to social media.

Clavijo's post has gotten more than 30,000 shares and received an outpouring of praise for the rescue mission.

"A lot of situations, rescues, where you say there is an animal in distress in these conditions, and they most likely will say we have to focus on people", he told the Herald Tribune.

While moving the manatees might have been well-intended, Brian Norris, a public information officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said people should not place themselves in danger to try to save marine wildlife during inclement weather.
