AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for July 10, 2013


The National Weather Service says that big waves and rip currents will hit San Diego’s beaches late this afternoon and into tomorrow. Swimmers and surfers need to be very careful and always swim in front of a lifeguard. Personally on days like these unless you’re a strong ocean swimmer and experienced surfer do not go in the water. However if you do go in and end up getting caught in a rip remember to swim parallel to the shore until your free of the current then swim in.

Inez Martinez Garcia, and Marcial Garcia Hernandez were arrested yesterday and are being charged with thirteen counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 years old.
