Man, dead strong after the current floating of Florida; Missing good Samaritan

Two people died and later they were swept out of Tampa, Florida বর্তমান current Friday night, according to officials with good Samaritans who are missing trying to help them.

About 7:30 a.m. ET, the Hillsboro County Sheriff’s Office received a “furious 911 call” from a woman at Apollo Beach Nature Perserve, according to WFLA, an affiliate of NBC’s Tampa.

A man and a 3-year-old “started wading in the water and got adopted by the strong current at the Apollo Beach Channel,” Sheriff Chad Chronister told reporters at the scene.

The couple who saw the 911 calling boyfriend ran into the water to try to protect them and was overtaken by the current, the sheriff said.

Authorities found men and children, but they did not survive. Their names were not released.

Efforts have been made to locate the couple to rescue the man, and search efforts are still ongoing. The Coast Guard is assisting the search, officials said Saturday. The sheriff’s office, such as 27-year-old Kristoff Murray, identified him, according to the WFLA.
