Beach Lesson 101:
When you see this.....
It means do not go into the water. No swimming, dangerous water, under tow, strong current, rip tide....if you go in this might happen.
You might need to get rescued. :(
Three people got caught up in the rip tide and were pulled out into the ocean.
We saw the helicopter go by. They were hovering over them and then they started dropping out the life preservers.
Then the jet ski, and the trucks started racing down the beach.
When the jet ski got there they started throwing out life jackets. Then they got the people on the jet ski and he brought them to the beach.
From what I can gather, I believe these people are ok, and did not have to be hospitalized. Unfortunately someone else drowned in the waters in another part of the beach and four others were hospitalized.
Its amazing the number of people who ignored the flags and got into the surf.
Even today the double red flags were out and people were still going on out there. So if you are going to the beach just remember to be careful and pay attention to the flags .
