Emergency responders have made more than a dozen rescues along Florida’s Gulf Coast in the last 24-hours.
Double-red flags are flying warning swimmers to a potentially lethal combination.
The Bay County Sheriff's helicopter hovers over another swimmer overcome by the strong undertow and rip-tides.
Since Thursday afternoon, the Bay County Sheriff's department and Beach Patrol has been working around the clock, desperately trying to get people to abide by the double-red flag warning.
If a double-red flag is flying, the water is closed for swimming.
Sergeant Tony Walker hopes the undertow; rip-tide combination will subside by Sunday and beach goers need to stay abreast of the flag warning system.
