Torrance beach water

06:03 Apr 28 2022 Torrance beach by dolphin statue

My son is very sick after surfing. He went surfing on Sunday evening and was told by another surfer when he got out of the water that there was a red tide and to beware that he would probably get sick. Sure enough ton Wednesday afternoon he became very nauseous and threw up. He threw up many times that evening. I am not sure if it is from being the ocean or not but it sure is a concerning thought.
