Dangerous Rip Currents At FL Beaches Leading To Dozens Of Rescues

Rip currents are causing a hazardous environment across beaches in one Central Florida county. 

Authorities say the conditions in Volusia County could continue through the weekend. 

The folks at Volusia's Beach Safety Ocean Rescue tell the Daytona Beach News-Journal they rescued more than 70 people from the water yesterday (Wednesday). That includes one man who was unresponsive and had to be rushed to the hospital. 

Meanwhile, a 14-year-old surfer suffered a minor cut on his foot after being bitten by a shark at New Smyrna Beach yesterday.

Officials are reminding the public to always exercise caution and to follow the suggestions of beach authorities and lifeguards.
