Mike, that is indeed tragic. I was going to mention how to get out of a rip tide but you did in the end of your post. Most people don't realize they can swim parallel to the shore until that get out of the rip tide and then would be able to swim closer to shore. But it sounds as this couple had been fighting the tide too long and had exhausted themselves. What a terrible thing to happen while on vacation.
