Man Dies While Trying To Save Grand Kids From Rip Current

A Virginia man died on Ocracoke Island while trying to save his two grandchildren, who were caught in a rip current.

73-year-old Stanley Dye of Amissville died Monday afternoon near the ramp 67 parking area. That's near the middle of the island.

The 15-year-old and 18-year-old youngsters managed to get back to land.

The National Park Service says there were two doctors who performed CPR and they are not ruling out that the man had a medical problem.
