MARCO ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - Wildlife officials say three manatees have stranded themselves on a southwest Florida beach.

Officials on Tuesday said two of the manatees look healthy, while the third looks thin. If it is deemed too thin, it will be rescued.

They might be able to swim away as the tide rises later in the day.

The manatees are at Marco Island's Tigertail Beach.
