When Brayden Webb fell ill on a Disney cruise, the ship’s doctor decided that the six-year-old needed urgent medical attention. But, of course, owing to the little boy’s location, getting him to the hospital wouldn’t be simple. In the end, then, it was up to the Coast Guard, which launched an epic sea rescue in a bid to help Brayden before it was too late.

The Webb family – mom Melanie, dad Allan, eldest child Ben and their twins Brayden and Bella – reside in the city of Calhoun in north Georgia. And in the summer of 2016, the clan were preparing themselves for the trip of a lifetime.

It had been Melanie and Allan’s dream, you see, to take their children on a Disney cruise. And that July, the Webbs duly set sail for an adventure that they would likely never forget. The family didn’t know at the time, however, that the vacation would be memorable in more ways than one.
