RIch's Inlet

I was asked to help search...running the banks on Nixon and Green and criss-crossing the main body of water and worked my way into the inlet...it was hard to navigate at night at there was a fairly significant chop. The NHC Rescue and Coast Guard set up a command post at a private residence on the North End of Figure 8. They were patrolling the beach on ATV's etc ad walking the beach. Their collecive efforts were outstanding, compounded with the normal lunacy on a Holiday weekend, they were all spread very thin. Ogden was there, EMTS, Fire & Rescue, NHC Highway Patrol and Sheriff on land and on sea and additonally the US Coast Guard did an outstanding job of communicating to all whilst handling other emergencies in their jurisdiction. Every single person there was doing all they could. One gentleman went out in the inlet in the NHC Zodiac and battled 3 - 5 foot chop with thermal imaging and took a beating but was committed too his efforts in locating the individual. It was a terrible accident and when "backtracked" per se, I am sure a reason will emerge. My heart goes out to the family's of these people.
