Louivsille, Ky. (WHAS11) - A dramatic resuce is taking place hundreds of miles out at sea.

A California couple and their two daughters set sail from Mexico two weeks ago on their way to New Zealand.

Then hundreds of miles off the coast, they sent out a distress call that their one-year-old daughter had gotten very sick.

She had an infection and a severe rash.

They had also run into mechanical problems with their boat.

An air rescue team was able to spot the family in the water. They will set out to rescue them this morning.

The girl's condition is improving.
