Two men rescued after jumping into water at Sunset Cliffs
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Lifeguards were sent to rescue two men in their 20’s who had jumped into the surf and gotten caught up in the churning waters, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
The rescue happened at Sunset Cliffs Thursday morning around 10:45 a.m.
The personnel pulled one of the men from the surf by lifeguards on a rescue craft, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. The other man had to be hauled off a steep bluff he had managed to reach.
“Because of high surf, lifeguards and firefighters performed a cliff rescue to get (him),” Munoz said. “Fortunately, there were no injuries that required hospitalization.”
Lifegaurds said the two are members of the San Diego Seals Professional Indoor Lacrosse Team.
