Young boy at Sunset Beach rescued from ocean

SUNSET BEACH, N.C. — A young boy was pulled out of the ocean at Sunset Beach Sunday and is now safe, according to a Sunset Beach Fire Department Facebook post. 

He was rescued from rough waters near the Sunset Beach Fishing Pier by by-standers and beach patrol staff.

The fire department says swimming is not recommended this weekend as the risk of rip currents is high and waves are building.
