CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Port Aransas Police made sure a distressed windsurfer was safe on shore and it was all caught on video.

The incident happened out on the beach in Port Aransas near mile marker 19.

According to Officer Seth Rosebrook from the Port Aransas Police Department, the windsurfer was out too far when his kite fell into the water. Luckily, some good Samaritans loaned the officers some jet-skis and the officers were able to guide the man and his kite back to shore safely.

The windsurfer was fine and suffered no injuries.

Officer Rosebrook reminds beach goers to be careful when surf conditions are choppy.

Special thanks to Jacob Mills and his wife, who witnessed the events unfold and were able to capture some of it using their drone.
