IPSWICH, Mass. (AP) - Police and the Coast Guard have rescued a man and his son-in-law who went swimming off Crane Beach in Ipswich and were swept away by a rip current.

The two experienced swimmers entered the water around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday but did not return home as expected. Family members contacted the police after finding their bicycles on shore.

Ipswich police found the son-in-law in the water south of Crane Beach. He told them he and his father-in-law were caught in heavy fog and then swept out by a rip current.

After searching for an hour, a Coast Guard helicopter crew saw the father-in-law in the water. He was taken to shore and is in stable condition.

Both men were wearing wet suits. They were not identified.
