A new program that helps find lost children began Saturday in Carolina Beach. Kids were seen wearing one of seven different colored wristbands. The color matches that of the nearest lifeguard stand. The goal is to help identify where lost children came from on the beach. Now, if children wander, they can be reunited with families by using the bracelet color-coding system. Parents say they like the new program. ”I think it's a wonderful idea. My kids tend to be a little rambunctious so if somebody sees them with a red wrist band at least they'll know which lifeguard station we're in front of,” said Tiffany Newton. Carolina Beach responded to about 36 lost child calls last year.
