Jim Gold, msnbc.com -- One swimmer who vanished off the New Jersey shore was found drowned Thursday morning while the search continued for a second caught by rip currents.
Both incidents occurred at beaches where no lifeguards were on duty.
Garrett Giberson, public information officer for the Asbury Park fire department, told NJ.com, website of the Star-Ledger newspaper. “Basically the bottom line is this: When lifeguards are off duty, stay out of the water. Rip tides are dangerous and obviously deadly. It's not worth your life."
