CLEARWATER BEACH (FOX 13) -

Three people at Clearwater Beach were pulled to safety in what the police chief called a "rip current-related" rescue.

Details are still filtering in at this point, but Clearwater Fire and Rescue says one person was pulled from the water near lifeguard tower #5 around 10:52 a.m. and needed CPR.

They were able to get a pulse back and were taken to a hospital.

The general area of the rescue was 534 Mandalay near the "Palm Pavilion."

The people have not been identified, but the woman who was taken to the hospital is 50 years old and was in potentially life-threatening condition.

The other two people refused treatment at the scene.

On Wednesday, a woman died after getting caught in a rip current at Pass-A-Grille. Four others were injured, and officials are cautioning anyone venturing out into the water to be careful.
