Pensacola: Surfer Drowns At Alabama Point

As reported on

Edouard is not headed our direction, but the tropical storm is creating deadly surf along our stretch of the Gulf Coast.

Orange Beach Assistant Police Chief Greg Duck tells News 5 a surfer drowned in the water around Alabama Point. His body was pulled out of the water after 5:00 p.m. A helicopter was brought in to fly the surfer to the hospital, but he died on the beach.

Lifeguards are now putting up double red flags which means all waters are closed.
