TOMALES (AP) — Authorities say nine people and a dog were rescued in two incidents during windy and high-surf conditions in the San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday.
The San Jose Mercury News reports Monday that Marin County Fire Department Battalion Chief Bret McTigue says four kayakers and a dog were dumped into the water from 4-foot waves off Sacramento Landing Sunday morning.
They were dumped into the water from 4-foot waves off Sacramento Landing, at about the midpoint of Tomales Bay’s western shore.
The fire department and the National Park Service sent boats to retrieve the victims. They treated for hypothermia and released.
Meanwhile, a 14-foot aluminum boat capsized nearby with five people aboard. Authorities found the victims with the help of a California Highway Patrol helicopter crew. They were not seriously injured.
