Restaurant employees pull struggling woman from water

CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) - Two restaurant employees jumped into action to help a woman struggling in the water Sunday in Carolina Beach.

Jeffrey Hubbard and Chad Jeffrey were working at Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar when the woman reportedly was causing problems in the restaurant and was asked to leave.

The woman allegedly stumbled into the water. The two men saw her grabbing onto pilings and decided to go after her.

"She was like, kicking, and saying, 'I don't want to go, I don't want to go,' and thrashing her arms," Hubbard said. "It was crazy.She did not want to cooperate at all. That made it more difficult on us and we were already struggling. Three of us, this other guy came in, and we eventually get her up on shore and she just not having any of it."

The woman didn't appear to suffer any serious injuries.
