Seaside Heights Police Chief Closes Borough's Beaches Following Second Call For Water Rescue
Red flags were flying on unguarded beach
Seaside Heights police and rescue workers were called out once again for a water rescue prompting Borough Plice Chief Thomas J. Boyd to shut down the municipality's beaches for the day.
"The beach is now closed per our chief," said Detective Steven Korman. "The chief shut down the beach. We are locking the beach gates."
In the second major incident of the day, police were called to the Blaine Avenue beach for swimmers in distress.
Upon arrival at 6:33 p.m. police found two female swimmers making their way out of the water.
At that point there was confusion over a third swimmer. Triboro First Aid and the water rescue team were called out once again.
It turned out that the male swimmer made his way out of the water at a different location, Korman said.
The female swimmers were identified as a 28-year-od from New Rochelle, NY and a 30-year-old from Albany, NY.
Red warning flags for dangerous surf were flying in the unguarded beaches, Korman previously said.
