Folks, we hate sharing this heartbreaking update from Emerald Isle with you. Such a sad situation for all involved.
Rip currents don’t care who you are or how old you are. They are just an everyday part of ocean life. It’s our job to talk about them, to learn how to recognize and avoid them, to have a strategy for how to react if caught in one, and what to do/not to do if we see someone caught in a rip.
Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers. Ian’s body was found this morning. Paige passed away a few days later, but lives on in the people who were lucky enough to receive her organs that her family so graciously donated.
