A Florida-based family has been giving thanks to God following the finding of their son, Dylan Gartenmaye, who went missing in the ocean last week. Appearing with her son on Wednesday’s episode of Today, Dylan’s mother Tabitha “Tabby” Gartenmayer said finding her son safe “definitely had to be a miracle.”
Per multiple reports, 22-year-old Dylan went missing in the ocean last week while free diving. ”It had to be God protecting him the whole time,” Tabitha “Tabby” Gartenmayer said during the joint interview with her son, who was found after being stranded in open water off Key West.
Dylan explained he was spearfishing last Thursday when he drifted nearly a mile away from the boat that took him out to sea. He claimed that he was forced to hold his breath for nearly two minutes as he was swept away by the tides.
Watch the Gartenmaye relive the miracle of finding their son who barely survived being lost at sea.
