10-month-old baby drifts alone at sea as parents sunbathe

(WVUE) -

The Turkish Coast Guard rescued a 10-month-old baby who was drifting at sea in an inflatable crib as the parents were sunbathing on the beach.

They released video of the rescue.

You can see the baby girl, Melda Ilgin, floating in a blow-up crib about 1,000 yards off the beach. Melda's parents say they forgot they had left her in the inflatable device, and didn't even realize what had happened until other sunbathers on the beach told them.

The baby was returned to her parents.
