    A French tourist drowned in the waters off Miami Beach early Monday, police said. The man, identified by police as 40-year-old Frederic Guillaume, had been swimming with friends when he didn't make it to shore.

    Authorities said they restored the pulse of a man after he nearly drowned in the waters off Miami Beach Monday evening.

    Miami Beach Fire Rescue responded to a call of a man drowning in the water near 76th Street and Collins Avenue, spokesman Capt. Adonis Garcia said.

    The main in his 50s went swimming after having some alcoholic drinks, according to witnesses. But he ran into trouble in the water and had to be pulled out by other beachgoers.
