Two Men in Critical Condition Following Water Rescue in Miramar Beach

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. — Two people are in critical condition at the hospital following a water rescue Saturday afternoon in Miramar Beach.

A third person was hospitalized in stable condition.

The incident happened at 12:52 p.m.

A caller reported to South Walton Fire dispatchers that multiple people were struggling in the water near 1115 Scenic Gulf Drive — approximately 0.3 miles from the nearest lifeguard tower.

SWFD Beach Safety units arrived along with deputies to see multiple people caught in a rip current.

“According to bystanders on shore, a teenage male had been struggling in the water and members of his family had entered the water to attempt to rescue him,” a release from South Walton Fire states. “Lifeguards and deputies then entered the water and found two adult men were unresponsive and required resuscitation. The teenage male was in stable condition but required further medical attention.

Deputies and lifeguards brought all three to shore and began rendering lifesaving care to the two unresponsive patients. They were then transported to the hospital.

“SWFD ALS crews reported a return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) in one of the two patients, which indicates the patient had regained a pulse,” the release states.

SWFD is unable to provide a further update on the patients at this time.

At the time of the incident, single red flags were flying.

“Due to the number of rescues and potential for further life-threatening injuries, beach flags were changed to double red Saturday afternoon,” the release states.
