An 11-year-old boy who was pulled out by a rip current Wednesday evening is safe thanks to a young surfer.

“The boy was out near the end of the Navarre Pier by the time the surfer reached him,” said Navarre Beach Fire Rescue Chief Danny Fureigh. “He definitely was in pretty bad shape, swallowed a bunch of water, vomited it all back up in our truck.”
