Six people have died in separate incidents off the British coast after strong winds and stormy conditions left waters unsafe.
The latest man reported dead got into trouble outside the safe swim area at Sandbanks beach in Poole, Dorset.
He was seen having difficulties in the rip current and was recovered by lifeguards who performed CPR but could not resuscitate him.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, Dorset Police said.
The news comes just a day after a father was killed while fishing with his family in Newquay, Cornwall.
Stay safe out there, lads, and make sure you respect the water.
