The Coast Guard said some floating noodles were no help to two women who drifted too far from the beach. The pair had to be rescued.
The Coast Guard tells WITN two young women were using floating noodles in the water near New River Inlet around 12:30 Thursday afternoon when they drifted too far from the shore at the north end of North Topsail Beach in Onslow County.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the fire department launched a boat and rescued the two about fifteen minutes later.
The two were returned to shore and did not require any medical treatment.
