Indeed, from sunbathing on the sand to swimming in the sea, beaches are a great location for families during the summer months. And this is what awaited Dave Bennett, as he visited a Florida bay in July 2019.

A resident of Memphis, Tennessee, Bennett and his wife went to see their daughter Cheryl Bennett Wiygul in Niceville, Florida, during that period. After getting together, the family then spent a fun day out in Destin to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend, where they enjoyed plenty of time in the water.

Bennett and his family eventually returned to Wiygul’s home following their time at the beach, with the former in good spirits. By the end of the day he was relaxing on his own, catching a late night film on the television. However, everything changed just a few hours later.
