Vigil held for teen who died after jumping off Sunset Cliffs

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A vigil was held today to honor 15-year-old Anthony Womack who drowned after jumping off a cliff in the Sunset Cliffs area.

Lifeguards responded to a call around 10:40 a.m. Wednesday after witnesses reported seeing the teenager in the ocean after jumping off Pappy’s Point along Sunset Cliffs Blvd. near Osprey St., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Lifeguards searched the water for nearly an hour before finding the boy underwater and taking him to shore, where medics performed CPR.

The boy, a 10th grade student at Sweetwater High School, was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
