SEASIDE HEIGHTS – A 35-year-old borough man was pulled from rough surf Monday night.

Several local news outlets reported that scuba teams pulled the man from a rip current at the Dupont Avenue Beach. He was carried out 250 yards from shore, according to Seaside Heights Police.

The Seaside Heights, Seaside Park and Lavallette scuba teams responded to the distress call. The man was reportedly evaluated by Tri-Boro First Aid Squad and declined further treatment.

Police remind everyone that you should never swim without a lifeguard present and the beach season is officially over.
