Teen & adult from Louisiana die at Destin beach less than a week apart
DESTIN, Fla. - A Louisiana man visiting Florida was killed over the weekend after a group of swimmers was swept up in violent waters, just days after a teen from Louisiana died at the same popular vacation spot.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office said a 58-year-old man died Saturday after he was caught in a rip current at Henderson Beach and was unable to make it back to shore. He was pulled from the water around 6:15 p.m. and rushed to a local emergency room, but he was later pronounced dead.
The victim has not been publicly identified as of Monday morning.
