The death of a swimmer this Memorial Day weekend in Florida has drawn new attention to the dangers of rip currents.
One person drowned Sunday after he was pulled from the surf in Daytona Beach, in front of an unguarded lifeguard tower. Beach-goers nearby tried to revive him.
“We tried to keep his head up, and then we got him out and I started doing chest compressions,” Marissa Purvis said.
