I lived in north carolina about 3 miles from topsaid island for about 5 years of my childhood. My father still lives their and i have never had an issue like that. Im so sorry for what had happened to the little girl and it really scares me because i was just their about a week before this happened, my kids were playing in the water and my son had got himself a body bord. I dont know what i would have done if something like this had happened to me or my children. I hope that she is ok and that she doesnt hate the ocean now. But luck to her.
