The Atlantic Ocean looked crystal clear Wednesday, but the beach was lined with red "Danger" flags and swimming was banned along a 25-mile stretch because a broken pipe spewed more than 25 million gallons of raw sewage into Biscayne Bay. On a sunny 90-degree day, tourists sat on the shore, watching the flat ocean, while many locals headed farther north to avoid contaminated waters. Lifeguards patrolled the beach to try to keep people from entering the water.
