Rangers were dispatched to the Ramp 59 area last Friday afternoon in response to a report of a man missing in the ocean. When they arrived, they learned that Kathleen Rosen and her husband Seth, both from Ohio, had been caught up in a rip current; she made it back to shore, but he didn’t. His body was spotted in the ocean about 30 yards from shore and a quarter mile north of his last known location not long thereafter. Rangers and emergency responders entered the ocean and brought him to shore. He was not breathing and had no pulse. CPR was begun immediately and he was taken to Ocracoke Medical Clinic, where he was later pronounced dead.
