Woman Drowns At Topsail Beach

Police say a woman has drowned in the surf at Topsail Beach.

Sixty-six-year-old Laurel King drowned Monday. The former town employee told a friend she wanted to get out but before she could, she went under.

Police say it's not clear whether King suffered some sort of medical problem before she went under. The drowning happened on a section of beach where there are no lifeguards.

It's the second drowning at Topsail Beach this year.
