Lifeguards Find Body of Missing Teen Swimmer

NEW SMYRNA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities have found the body of a 14-year-old boy who was caught in dangerous rip currents at a central Florida beach.
His body washed onto the shore Monday, a day after Volusia County Beach Patrol spent hours searching for him with helicopters and power-skis.
The boy had been in the water with two friends. Swimmers were able to rescue them.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports red flags warned swimmers of rough conditions Sunday.
In nearby Ormond-by-the-Sea, lifeguards tried to save a 66-year-old man from Indiana and a companion. The man was holding onto the buoys and suddenly let go. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. Officials said his death may have been health-related.
