The National Park Service says a California man has drowned after being caught in a rip current off a North Carolina beach.
The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported that 50-year-old Keith M. Goldstein of San Francisco drowned Friday afternoon when he was caught in the dangerous surf off Mirlo Beach. Chief Ranger Paul Stevens of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore says Goldstein and two other people were caught in the surf. Stevens says a family member rescued the other two people, and another person pulled Goldstein from the water. He was pronounced dead at The Outer Banks Hospital.
Stevens says this was the sixth drowning at the seashore this year.
