Beach lifeguards in Ocean City, Maryland, make nearly 400 rescues over Labor Day weekend

September 6, 2023

Ocean City, Maryland, beach lifeguards put the labor into Labor Day weekend, making 380 ocean rescues of swimmers over the course of Saturday and Sunday. Storm remnants strengthened rip currents near the city’s 10-mile span of beach, taking swimmers hundreds of yards out to sea. Whereas city beach lifeguards have enough staff to operate 90 lifeguard stands during the summer, they have the manpower to staff only 33 stands once August ends and school and college resume.
