Three surfers were brought to safety Monday afternoon after getting caught in a rip current in Seaside. As a preventative measure, an on-duty lifeguard entered the water to warn the surfers — all in their early 20s — they were in a rip current when crews from the lifeguard tower noticed two of the surfers were “hanging on to each other” and called Seaside Fire & Rescue to the scene, officials said. Around 12:40 p.m., SF&R lifeguards, crews on jet skis, and a United States Coast Guard helicopter were on the scene and found the three surfers were being pulled out by the rip current. Crews rescued the surfers, officials said, noting the surfers were not injured and did not need any medical attention.
