Havanah Lepper, left, and her friend, Kaidence Carmichael Hunt, were on these floaties at Blue Sea Beach on Aug. 7 when they started to drift away from the shore thanks to the wind. Havanah's mother tried to swim out to the girls, but wasn't able to reach them. Firefighters from Wallace rescued the girls with a Zodiac they purchased late last year. Lisa Betts photo
