A teenage middle school student who was playing in the water on a tube at Eulwang-ri Beach in Yeongjong-do, Incheon was washed away and drifted into the sea and was rescued in about 10 minutes.
At around 10:50 am today (13th), a citizen discovered that a teenage middle school student group A, who rode a tube, was drifting in the sea near Eulwang-ri Beach, Yeongjong-do, Jung-gu, Incheon, and called 119.
The citizen asked for help, saying, "a tube is floating in the distance from the sea."
After that, the parents of group A immediately found out that the child was missing.
Three members of the Eulwang-ri Citizens Water Rescue Team from the Yeongjong Fire Station quickly rescued the water on a jet ski and a rescue boat, about 1 km away.
Group A came to play with his family, and at low tide, he rode a bird-shaped tube to play in the water, and it was investigated that he was floated to the sea by 1 km under the influence of birds and wind.
A firefighter official said, "You should be careful with bulky tubes, because they are more easily affected by currents and winds if they are large."
