Surfer rescued after being found face-down in water

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man was rescued off the coast of Imperial Beach Friday morning after fellow surfers found him floating face-down in the water.

Lifeguards say the man, who was in his 20s, stayed in the cold water too long in a wetsuit that was too big.

They carried him to the beach. He was conscious and alert, but was taken to Scripps Chula Vista to be checked out.
