    Rip Current Warnings Posted at NH Beach Where Couple Died

    New rip current safety and warning signs have been posted at entrances to a New Hampshire beach where a couple drowned last year.

    The signs at Seabrook Beach warn people to "Break the Grip of the Rip," and swim out of the current, or float or tread water if you can't escape.

    Last August, a husband and wife, 49-year-old Michael Cote and 47-year-old Laura Cote, of Methuen, Massachusetts, were pulled unconscious from the water and died.

    Rip currents, sometimes referred to as riptides, are narrow channels of water that move as fast as 8 feet a second and occur at any beach with breaking waves. They move away from the shore. Anyone caught in them is advised to swim parallel to shore to escape their pull.
