Dangerous rip currents build in Orange Beach, several swimmers rescued
ORANGE BEACH, AL - Dangerous rip currents led to the rescue of seven people on Sunday.
Orange Beach Surf Rescue says the recovery took place at the Cotton Bayou public beach house near Perdido Pass.
"We've had two mothers and daughters that we've had to rescue, we also had a couple teenagers that we had to rescue," said Brett Lesinger, Beach Safety Supervisor for Orange Beach Surf Rescue.
With Subtropical Storm Alberto spinning in the Gulf, risks of high rip currents along the beaches of Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast are increasing.
Officials are warning swimmers to stay out of the water until Alberto's storm activity passes.
So far this year, Orange Beach lifeguards have saved about 20 people.
