10 Rescues on the 4th of July By Ventnor City Beach Patrol
Waves of people made their way to the shore for the big 4th of July holiday yesterday. The weather was picture perfect for some well deserved R & R on the beach and in the water.
Unfortunately, also present in the water, were dangerous rip currents. Lifeguards from Monmouth to Cape May counties were kept busy all day long, including the Ventnor City Beach Patrol and Boat Crew, according to the Press of Atlantic City.
10 people were rescued on the beaches of Ventnor due to big rip currents in the water on Wednesday. 3-4 people had to be rescued late in the afternoon due to a large rip on the Newport Avenue Beach, according to the report.
Never swim on an unprotected beach and always listen to the lifeguards, now more than ever. No exceptions on this rule, especially when the water is rough and filled with rip currents. Just remember, you're putting yourself in danger, as well the person who has to come in after you.
