Bystanders rescue man from drowning at Florida beach

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. [AP] – Bystanders saved a man from drowning at a Florida beach on Sunday, authorities said.

The 22-year-old man went into the water alone on Daytona Beach before the lifeguard tower opened, according to Capt. A.J. Miller, a spokesman for Volusia County Beach Safety.

“After struggling in the surf, witnesses stated they observed him go under the water,” Miller said in a statement given to the Orlando Sentinel.

Bystanders carried the man to the beach and gave him CPR before paramedics arrive on scene and transported him to the hospital.

“He is alive at this time,” Miller said.

Rip current risk was high on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.

The National Weather Service in Melbourne tweeted Sunday that there were 31 water rescues involving 66 swimmers only the day before.

“The High Risk for Rip Currents will continue through at least Monday. Entering the ocean remains strongly discouraged,” the weather service said.
