What Happened:

Two young males, age 10 and 15, on vacation from Idaho, jumped on their boogie boards and began to paddle out from Canyon Drive Park. But they hit a rip current and suddenly they were headed out fast and couldn’t change direction.

A man from Seattle, standing on the beach saw what was happening, got in the water and began swimming toward the boys. But he too got caught up in the rip current but it swept him off in a different direction.

A North Lincoln Fireman who lives in the area quickly figured out what was happening. He swiftly made his way out to the man and got him back to shore. Meanwhile North Lincoln Search and Rescue arrived and quickly deployed jet skiis. They raced out and soon had the two boys aboard and headed back to shore.

The would-be male rescuer was transported to North Lincoln Hospital to be checked out because he had swallowed a quantity of sea water – some of which may have gotten in to his lungs.

North Lincoln Fire officials say you don’t have to have big waves or pounding surf to get caught in a rip tide. A cautious analysis of the water surface should be done first before you jump into the ocean. If you see a semi-turbulent column of water stretching out from shore, stay away from it. See below:
