Distressed manatee receives assistance

This manatee in the vicinity of Venetian Shores in Islamorada had a rope tangled around its flipper. Someone called to report it. Marine Deputy Nelson Sanchez and Sgt. Mark Coleman responded. Here is Sgt. Coleman in the water, cutting the manatee free from the entanglement while Deputy Sanchez helps from the boat.
