MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Witnesses say a 10-point buck swam hundreds of yards into the ocean and drowned Sunday night.
Candace Stimpson says she and her husband witnessed the deer struggling in the ocean near the Sands Beach Club, and couldn't help but feel badly for the animal...
The buck reportedly struggled for about 45 minutes and finally succumbed to the waves, washing up on the beach a few minutes later.
