Here are a short list of recent news reports from around the world:
It is just a sample showing wha thas been happening. The list is by no means complete. What I am trying to show here is that all these items have one thing in common -- they all carried the words "swept out to sea"! Yes, 4 simple words put together form an unpleasant, sometimes tragic, aspect of life that can happen near the ocean beach and nearshore area, even onboard seagoing ships in the open ocean. These cases were happened recently. Of course there must be cases that happened locally not being reported and available on the internet news system. So when go out enjoy the beaches, be careful, beware, and be alert. Have a safe and enjoyable beach outing!
