Father and Autistic Son Swept Out to Sea and Survived!

In an amazing family story of survival, a 12-year-old who was caught in a riptide while swimming off the coast of Florida and his father who attempted to save him were swept out to sea on Saturday night. Wearing just swimming trucks, the two treaded treacherous water through the night and were separated before they were rescued by the Coast Guard 15 hours later. Both father and the tween who has autism are fine.
