The Coast Guard rescued a man attempting a mile-long swim off of Dauphin Island.
According to USCG, the man tried to swim from the southern tip Pelican Island to the Pelican Island Sandbar about a mile away. His wife called for help after he had not returned after an hour and a half.
A Coast Guard boat went to the area and found the man in the water. He told rescuers he was caught in a current and could not swim out of it.Read FOX10
