ENCINITAS (CNS) - A group of surfers tried in vain Tuesday to revive a fellow wave-rider after finding him unconscious and drifting in the swells off a remote section of Beacon's Beach.
The man was collapsed across his surfboard when spotted in the ocean about 11:30 a.m., Encinitas lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said.
Several other surfers paddled over to try to help the lifeless man, performing CPR while pulling him to shore. Once on land, one of the good Samaritans ran to get help, Giles said.
Lifeguards arrives minutes later and took over the lifesaving efforts before driving the stricken man to a parking area at Ponto Beach, several miles north in Carlsbad.
From there, an ambulance crew took the surfer to Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, continuing the attempt to resuscitate him on the way.
The man's condition was unavailable in the late afternoon. His name was withheld.
