Incredible drone footage of a rip current at Wrightsville Beach, NC. Discoloration of the water can be seen showing the location of the rip current. Three people are seen moved away from shore by the current, and attempt to swim against the current without luck. A lifeguard is seen making a rescue towards the end, having the swimmers grab flotation device before moving them out of the current in order to swim back to shore.
