Woman Drowns at Neptune Beach

NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. — One of two people pulled from rough surf Thursday afternoon has died and the other is hospitalized.

“Two teenagers had come in here and asked me to call 911 and said that somebody was drowning out on the beach,” said Terry Williams, who works at an Atlantic Beach business. “They immediately drug her up off the beach. She was just lifeless. It was just really scary.”

One victim was transported to Beaches Baptist in critical condition. Channel 4 learned that she died.

Some mistakes don’t have a do over.

Update: She was a tourist from Indiana.

When I mentioned in front of some developmentally delayed kindergarteners and first graders that I was going to the beach Wednesday, they got VERY upset. “No! Don’t go in the water! You’ll get drownded in the storm!”

Every child here knows that tropical storms are dangerous. Too bad that tourists don’t understand that.
