Beachgoers Battle Deadly Rip Currents by Forming Human Chains


Michigan beachgoers formed human chains on Sunday in an attempt to rescue swimmers from dangerous rip currents that left two people dead and three others injured, authorities said. You can see them forming the human chain in the Facebook live above. 

The Grand Haven Department of Public Safety says emergency responders were called to the area of the State Park Pavilion around 3:45p on a report of several swimmers struggling after being advised not to go into the water. 

They organized human chains with bystanders to find one of the swimmers, who had gone under. He was ultimately recovered from about 5 feet of water.

"They were performing CPR for a good five minutes that I observed," passerby Michael Diep recalled. The man was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name wasn't immediately released, but police said he was a 20-year-old from Lansing.
