One person was rushed to the hospital after he and a group of six others ended up in a dangerous rip current at New Smyrna Beach Saturday, officials said.

A 20-year-old man from Brazil was brought to shore and initially unresponsive when beach safety began conducting lifesaving efforts. 

The man regained a pulse while on the way to the hospital, a spokesperson for the Volusia County Beach Safety told FOX 35. 

The six others were not transported.
