WRAL reporter Amanda Lamb finds a rip current at a North Carolina beach and learns how to save herself..
Lt. John Scull, with the Wrightsville Beach Fire Department Ocean Rescue Team, says rip currents are nearly impossible to see, unless you're trained to spot them.
"What you're going to look for when you're looking for these rip currents is any kind of break in the waves," he said. "Any kind of suspended sediment going out, and if you look carefully, you can actually see water moving backwards in the current."

I guess that's what it means when they say ''just go with the flow.'' My first thought, if I would've been in a rip current would've been to swim against it. Not it all makes more sense. Thank you for this video!
