Four People Drown In Rip Currents At North Carolina Beaches

Four people drowned at beaches in North Carolina due to dangerous rip currents.  Two of the deaths happened at separate beaches in Brunswick County, and a third just miles north in New Hanover County. There was a moderate rip current warning in place for most of the coast of North Carolina over the weekend.

A 20-year-old man died after being swept away by a rip current off Sunset Beach at about 2 p.m. Saturday.  Beachgoers tried to save him by performing CPR but he was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

Another man drowned at Holden Beach while trying to help someone get free from a rip current, officials said.  The other person was safely brought to shore.  A third swimmer died at Wrightsville Beach around 11 a.m. on Saturday.  Lifeguards pulled the man out of the ocean, but he had already stopped breathing.
