Tragedy struck the Crystal Coast this afternoon...as a man apparently drowned in the surf.
It happened just after 3 p.m. at the Western Regional Beach Access in Emerald Isle--that's right off Highway 58. Authorities say a 60 year old man was transported to a hospital where he died.
Police are now in the process of notifying the man's family.
