15 People Rescued at Haeundae Beach Due to Summer’s First Rip Current

15 people were rescued yesterday due to rip currents that pulled them further into the seas at Haeundae beach.

According to Haeundae Beach management officials and local firefighters, a report was received at around 1:40 pm yesterday that 15 people were swept into the seas when a rip current occurred.

A rip is a strong, localized, and narrow current of water which moves directly away from the shore, cutting through the lines of breaking waves like a river running out to sea. A rip current is strongest and fastest nearest the surface of the water.

Fortunately, the waves weren’t that high meaning the victims did not get carried too far into the seas.
