Shearwater 26 Carolina

Body found in Emerald Isle (updated) - Carolinacoastonline

There is no lifeguard service at the privately owned pier, Mr. Rush said. Emerald Isle town manager Frank Rush said the boys were swimming in the 7900 block of the ocean about a quarter mile from Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier when they were caught in the current. Police Chief Reese said Mr. Hinnant and Mr. Worsley had been in a group of four teens visiting Emerald Isle on a day trip. He said emergency officials are examining their lifeguard service plan in the wake of this weekend’s tragedy, though they do not believe they can offer stationary lifeguard services everywhere along the strand.
