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 victim has not been publicly identified as of Monday morning.
