LONG BEACH -

Four people were rescued in Long Beach waters Friday evening.

Three children were swimming in the ocean near Riverside Avenue just after 6 p.m. when they found themselves in trouble.

There was no lifeguard on duty, so police say a man jumped in to try and save the kids, but he then needed to be rescued.

Officials arrived and pulled everyone back to the beach.

The kids, ages 9 through 11, and the man, are expected to be OK.
