Sandy takes down Lantana lifeguard tower

LANTANA, FL (WFLX) - An entire lifeguard tower in Lantana was no match for the high waves.

You can see it being ripped to shreds during high tide Sunday morning. The tower has been at this spot just north of Ocean Avenue for decades.

It was even fortified over the past few years and survived big storms dating back to 1991.
