VENTNOR, N.J. -

A trying day for the Ventnor Beach Patrol has been eased by the support and thoughtful actions of their fellow lifeguards.

Ventnor Beach Patrol's long time captain, Billy Howarth Jr., passed away over the weekend.

In order for all of the members of the Ventnor Beach Patrol to be able to attend the captain's services Thursday, Margate and Longport lifeguards stepped up to cover Ventnor's beaches for the day.

The city publicly thanked their neighboring beach patrols on the Ventnor City Facebook page.
