Search Suspended For Missing Teen After 2 Others Rescued Off Ocean Beach
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — A search for a 14-year-old boy lost in the water at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach Wednesday afternoon was being suspended for the night, although some rescue crew members will remain on the scene to keep watch, a fire official said Wednesday evening.
The boy was swimming with an adult and another juvenile who were rescued from the water earlier Wednesday afternoon, according to a U.S. Coast Guard official.
U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Loumania Stewart said an adult and a child were pulled from the water near Lincoln Way after the distressed swimmers were reported at 3:53 p.m., while a third juvenile remained missing.
The rescued adult and juvenile were transported to a hospital with unknown injuries, Stewart said.
A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and two rescue boats were on scene Wednesday afternoon to assist with the search, she said.
