There is now an estimate on how much it cost to rescue a San Diego family with a sick child off the coast of Mexico.

A San Diego newspaper crunched the numbers and says the price for the joint effort between the Coast Guard, Navy and National Guard came to $663,000 and could go higher.

The family arrived back on shore Wednesday. The parents have taken some heat for taking their children on a yearlong sailing trip.
