Swimmer Found Off the Delaware Coast
A swimmer was rescued from an unguarded area near Rehoboth and Dewey Beach.
The Delaware’s Natural Resources Police with the help of a Delaware state police helicopter located the swimmer and took him to safety.
The swimmer had drifted a half mile from the shore line to the southern Dewey Beach.
The state police told WBOC that the outgoing tide along with a strong south wind pushed the swimmer from the shoreline.
State officials said that the waters along the coast line are strong with tidal or rip currents that can pull a swimmer out to sea.
