How to Escape a Rip Current

1) Don't panic. Most rip current deaths occur because swimmers fight the rip current, get exhausted and drown. 2) Swim parallel to the beach. Swimming straight back to shore will put you head-to-head with the rip current's full force. 3) Make your way back to shore once you've escaped the rip current.
