According to the city, the other victims rescued refused treatment.

The woman is the sixth person to die on the Outer Banks in 2018 while swimming in the Atlantic. A 4-year-old boy died in April while walking along a Kitty Hawk beach when a large wave knocked him down and pulled him into the surf.
