A man who was saved from drowning at Beachside Village on Tuesday by his two children is being mourned by his family. The children were the ones who floated him back to shore.
At approximately 2:10 p.m., members of the Galveston Island Beach Patrol were dispatched to the area just west of Sunny Beach due to a drowning occurrence. A passerby reported seeing a guy with his two youngsters submerged in water up to their chests.
According to the authorities, the lads were wearing life jackets. They brought their father to shore with the assistance of a stranger who administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The man, who was 38 years old, was taken to the hospital, but at 3:08 p.m., the medical staff announced that he had passed away.
The man’s passing is the fourth person to lose their life to open-water drowning so far this summer. The life jackets worn by the lads, according to the officials, may have averted further catastrophes.

Visitors are strongly encouraged by the beach patrol to swim near a lifeguard, to avoid swimming near structures or at the ends of the island, to never swim alone, to follow warning signs and flags, to appoint a water watcher, and to refrain from swimming if they have been drinking alcohol.
