    Wildwood lifeguards pulled four swimmers caught in a rip current this morning, according to a report on NJ.com. 

    The lifeguards were about to begin their workday shortly before 10:00 a.m. when they saw the swimmers in distress in the calm water, the report said. 

    The victims, three men and one woman, were rescued by the lifeguards, who revived an unconscious man after performing CPR, according to the report. 

    A beach patrol spokesman told NJ.com that two were originally caught in the rip current, while the others got stuck while attempting a rescue. 

    According to a National Weather Service surf forecast, there is a moderate risk of rip current development today. 

    The service recommends always swimming near a lifeguard.
