The Town of Nutter Fort recognized three of their fireman Tuesday night, who went above and beyond the call of duty while they were vacationing at Myrtle Beach.
The woman survived, unfortunately, the man passed away from his injuries.
The town council presented the three with a plaque of appreciation.
"Only thing they told us was that neither of them could swim. Talking to a translator, they were out in the ocean and got caught in the rip current which took them out further than what they could touch," described Chief Haddix. "You know, when you see it, I knew I had the skills and the ability to try and help, couldn't just stand by and watch it happen."
