posted by Chris & Rosie - 

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.
