Florida Beaches Face Dangerous Rip Currents

In total, Florida lifeguards rescued 220 people this holiday weekend, more than they usually rescue in two full weeks, NBC News reported. Red flags dotted the sands in Daytona Beach, Florida, warning swimmers of possible danger. “I had a panic attack. My heart almost stopped beating, and that’s why I have to leave the beach right now,” said Teresa Lattimore, a mother whose 10-year-old son was among those caught in the potentially deadly currents.
