HAMPTON, N.H. — Officials say several beachgoers had to be assisted by lifeguards at a New Hampshire beach due to strong rip currents.

Lifeguards helped 18 people Monday at Hampton Beach. No one was injured.

Beach Patrol Captain Pat Murphy tells WMUR-TV swimmers were only allowed up to their waists at the beach due to the strong currents.

Lifeguards have helped 160 people in the water at Hampton Beach so far this season.

Officials say they are monitoring conditions for Tuesday.

Dangerous rip currents also led to rescues in Maine. Old Orchard Beach town officials say 10 people in danger of drowning were rescued on Monday.
