A 12-year-old boy has survived after spending as long as 20 minutes immersed in the Pacific Ocean surf. Charles 'Dale' Ostrander was visiting the southwest Washington coast with members of his church youth group last Friday when he was caught in a riptide north of Long Beach. Doug Knutzen is part of the volunteer surf rescue team that spotted the boy in the water. When Knutzen carried Dale from the surf and handed him to medics, the veteran rescuer feared the worst. Rescue swimmers Eddie Mendez and Will Green return Charles 'Dale' Ostrander to the shore after the youngster got caught in a riptide north of Long Beach, Washington. PRAYER from this boys family and friends help this boy come out of the water alive.
