On Wednesday, April 14, 2021, more than a dozen people on a Florida beach joined together to form a human chain to brave the rough Gulf tide to rescue a stranded swimmer. Briana Stelmachers and her family were lounging outside the Emerald Isle Resort in Panama City Beach, FL when they heard a woman screaming for help.
A little girl was pulled out by the tide, and a woman had successfully swum out to save her. But a second woman involved in the rescue effort was stuck. So Briana’s husband, Ryan, took a raft and tried to rescue the woman, but the surf was too rough and he struggled to reach her. The final safe return of all was due to dozens of Florida beachgoers forming a human chain to reach out into the water, in the video published on April 15, 2021, “Beachgoers Form Human Chain to Save Swimmer Struggling in Florida Surf“, below:

The main reason why people lose their lives when stuck in a rip current comes down to panic. When they find themselves suddenly being pulled away from the shore at a high speed, terror ensues, they start to panic, wear themselves out in the fight, and drown because of it. What you should do instead is stay calm, take control of the situation, keep afloat, weigh your options, and don’t exhaust yourself, in the video published on Aug 7, 2018, “It Takes Hundreds of Lives a Year, But Only 5% Know About It“, below:
