MIRAMAR (CBS SF) – A tourist looking out at the ocean from a hotel near Miramar spotted a body in the water Thursday morning, a San Mateo County sheriff’s spokeswoman said.
The body, that of a white man in his 30s, was pulled from the surfline along Miramar Beach after the tourist called authorities around 9:30 a.m., sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said.
There were no obvious signs of trauma and the cause of death has not been determined, according to Rosenblatt.
The coroner’s office was working to identify the body and notify family members.
