Put safety first at the beach this summer!

Summer time creates the opportunity for fun events outside! It is important to always put safety first and be cautious of what is going on around you. We were sorry to hear the story of the man who fell off the Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier in Emerald Isle on Saturday morning around 11:30am. The man, from Raleigh, was looking at something when we fell off the piece and landed in about three feet of water in the ocean.

Luckily bystanders and surfers were able to bring the man ashore and call for medical help. He was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and is in critical condition.

Piers and docks can be extremely dangerous. Make sure that when you’re on docks or piers, whether you are fishing or just observing, that you are very careful to look out for broken boards, nails, unstable rails and other hazards.
