HIGHLAND BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An apparently intelligence-impaired 17-year-old male required a rescue response Wednesday afternoon when he decided to go swimming behind 4012 South Ocean Boulevard in Highland Beach.

Fire Rescue officials called the scene — despite high winds — were prepared for an open water rescue, but immediately realized that he had exited the water and was on the ground.

Beaches are closed in Palm Beach County so it’s unclear if the man will face charges for entering the water during an emergency.

We do suspect he had a stern “talking to” by rescue officials about the sheer idiocy of entering a closed beach during a hurricane.
