In thirty years of living at Panama City Beach, I've heard many, many sad stories of people drowning due to the riptides and simply not obeying the Beach Flag Warning System! But this recent incident is truly one of the saddest!  Mr. Redmon, of Vernon, died because people neglected to obey the double red flags.  Yes, parents allowed their children to swim in the rough waters as DOUBLE RED FLAGS were flying.  Mr. Redmon died a HERO but his children have lost their father and his wife is now a widow.  Our hearts go out to this lovely family.  

Please obey the Beach Warning Flags!!  They are there for our safety. Double Red Flags Mean THE BEACH IS CLOSED!   DO NOT ENTER.
