Another typical sunny day on the beach at Panama City, Florida turned out to be much more than that. A family got swept away by super strong riptides and instead of doing nothing, locals and beach goers all banded together to create a human chain in a rescue attempt.
A typical family on the warm sunny beach, Roberta Ursey was relaxing with her mother when she suddenly lost sight of her two sons, 8-year-old Stephen and his 11-year-old Brother Noah. Then she suddenly heard their screams that made her spine curl and she immediately began to cry for help.
“They were screaming and crying that they were stuck,” she said. “People were saying ‘Don’t go out there.’”
