KAIT reports that Warren H. Moore, 62, of Jonesboro drowned in the Gulf of Mexico at Gulf Shores, Ala. on Monday afternoon, the latest of four victims who drowned there in less than 24 hours due to strong currents.
Baldwin County Coroner Stan Vinson said that Moore was trying to save a woman caught in a riptide near the Gulf State Pier when he was pulled under. The woman was rescued by another man. Gulf Shores has since closed their beaches due to the dangerous conditions.
