US Coast Guard: 2 Lifeguards, 1 Swimmer Rescued in OC

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP/WBOC)- The U.S. Coast Guard says no injuries were reported after two lifeguards and a swimmer were rescued off the coast of Ocean City.

The Coast Guard says the three people were rescued Sunday afternoon after the swimmer was swept out by strong currents. 

According to the Coast Guard, two Ocean City Beach Patrol members were also swept out after jumping in to assist the swimmer near a jetty who the current had taken into the inlet.

The Coast Guard says a boat crew launched a 24-foot special purpose craft and rescued all three people from the water.
