To the Editor:
I just wanted to give a big thank you to the South Beach life guard crew, Dave Spindle, Garret Rice, Crystal Miske, and Kursten Meehan.
They did a great job of rescuing me when I realized I was out too far and couldn't get back in at South Beach on Saturday. I knew I couldn't get back in alone, and started to call for help.
Thanks also to the many people in the water near me who tried to assist. The lifeguards got to me before I even had time to blink. Thanks again for the quick response, and for keeping us all safe.
