It's the same as if you were swimming normally, swim 50m at a 45 degree angle to the current or if you are not a strong swimmer let the current take you out the swim 50m'sat a 90 degree angle to escape, never try to swim directly against a current or rips you will exhaust yourself and drown

Resisting is the worst thing you can do. If you do get pulled in let the current take you and hope that it doesn't take you too far

Swim parallel to shore, across the current. If you tire, float on your back until you are out of the current and then swim to shore.
