Nags Head Ocean Rescue (NHOR) responded to a swimmer out in the ocean in distress.
NHOR Lifeguards are trained to maintain concentrated observation of their duty area and its users in order to anticipate problems. They identify emergencies and quickly intervene with rescue measures.
This incident near Jennette’s Pier is an example of why it’s so important to swim near a lifeguard stand, swim with a flotation device, know rip current conditions and follow the lifeguard instructions.
Lifeguard Ethan did a great job bringing this swimmer to safety. Lifeguard Supervision Sarah assisted by assessing the swimmer to confirm no injuries and educate on rip currents and ocean safety.
