If you go to the beach and see a place without waves, don’t come any closer

If you go to the beach and see a spot without waves, don’t come any closer. It is a current that can occur RANDOMLY along the coast. This area will be darker in color because the water there is deeper than normal, the water surface is calmer, and the waves are smaller…

Once you enter here, the water will pull you into the middle of the sea at a speed so fast that even an Olympic athlete probably won’t be able to swim back. This is also the cause of 80% of drowning accidents at sea.

If you are caught in this current, the first thing to do is to stay calm, then swim horizontally to escape, do not try to swim to shore.
