A U.S. Navy ship was able to rescue a family and their ill infant on Sunday after they were stranded approximately 900 miles off Mexico's Pacific Coast.
When 1-year-old Lyra Kaufman became very sick while on her family's sailboat, they sent out a distress call by satellite on Thursday.
According to their blog, the Kaufmans, along with their other daughter, 3-year-old Cora, sailed from Mexico on March 18 toward the South Pacific and eventually New Zealand.
In order to get the girl immediate medical attention, four members of the California Air National Guard parachuted to the sailboat. They were eventually picked up by a Navy frigate.
The family and the infant are reportedly in stable condition.
