NC - Group lays wheelchair-friendly flooding at Carolina Beach access

Carolina Beach is once again more wheelchair accessible thanks to local non-profit Ocean Cure.

The group uses beach wheelchairs, accessible flooring, and adaptive surfboards to make beaches accessible to everyone.

Ocean Cure Founder and Director Kevin Murphy says volunteers spent about five hours on Saturday putting up the flooring in front of the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.

Murphy says the flooring will stay down until either a major hurricane forces them to take it up or school starts back in the fall.
