Man dies saving 3 daughters from rip tide

 Jul 28 (emirates247): Authorities say a father from Tennessee has drowned after trying to save his three daughters from a rip current off the North Carolina coast.

Meanwhile, there’s a search farther down the coast for a missing swimmer.

The Atlantic Beach Fire Department said in a news release that someone in a passing boat was able to save the girls Monday afternoon, but could not rescue 35-year-old Rick Brown before he lost consciousness.

Paramedics attempted CPR on Brown, but could not resuscitate him. Brown was on vacation from his Piney Flats, Tennessee, home.

In Wrightsville Beach, about 100 miles farther down the coast, Police Chief Dan House tells local media outlets a man was reported missing after going swimming on Tuesday morning.

The Coast Guard and local agencies are searching.
