Perreault, a 63-year-old from Surfside, was on Garden City Beach around 12:30 p.m. when the freak accident happened.

Off-duty medics and other beachgoers tried to save Perreault by giving her medical attention while they awaited first responders, said Thomas Bell, a spokesman for Horry County Emergency Management.

Perreault died in hospital from chest trauma.

“This is a terrible loss and we know our community is suffering,” Bell said.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim as they navigate this difficult time.”

Garden City is about 10 miles south of Myrtle Beach.

Honors quickly poured in for Perreault, including one from a local beach restaurant.

Scotty’s Beach Bar in Surfside Beach wrote on social media, “Today it is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of a dear friend and kind hearted local, Tammy Perreault.

“Some things we will never understand, but what we do know is that nobody has anything bad to say about this woman.

“Being as cute as her day in and day out should be a goal for everyone.”

One person replied: “Tammy was a beautiful, kind hearted woman! She will be missed by MANY Love and prayers to Mike and her family.”
