Florida woman and son drift miles away from shore on inflatable swan: ‘This could have ended so much worse’
A Florida mother said she had never been “more scared in [her] entire life” after she and her 7-year-old son floated several miles offshore while on a huge inflatable swan.
The incident occurred in the Gulf of Mexico off Anna Maria Island. Tara Myers, of Bradenton, told WFLA-News said she thought the conditions were perfect to launch the float — the water seemed calm and there was no wind — but that changed shortly after she and her son, Brennan, boarded the raft.
The current picked up and carried the two farther and farther from shore.
“I was not sure if we were going to keep drifting because land just kept getting farther and farther and farther away,” Myers told WFLA- News.
At one point, Myers panicked and tried paddling back toward dry land — to no avail.

Therefore we must pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it. Hebrews 2:1
