Bystanders revive woman who fell into Mission Bay

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Bystanders and medics came to the rescue of a 72-year-old woman who fell out of a suspended dinghy onto the deck of a sailboat, then into Mission Bay.

The accident at a Quivira Basin marina occurred about 10:30 a.m. when the woman fell about 4 feet out of the dinghy onto the deck, then went into the water, according to Maurice Luque of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Witnesses jumped into the water, got the woman out and started cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, because the woman was not breathing or conscious, Luque said.

Emergency crews arrived and soon re-established her heartbeat and got her breathing. Luque said she was awake and speaking en route to UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest, Luque said.
