A man who lost control of his one-person watercraft and was thrown into the sea near Oceanside Harbor had to be rescued by a multi-agency response team, a firefighter said Sunday.
At about 1 p.m. Saturday, a man in his early 20s was flung off his personal watercraft when he hit a jetty, according to Oceanside Fire Department Deputy Chief Joe Ward
The man struggled in the water, and was washed into the rocks of the jetty, Ward said.
Oceanside police, firefighters and lifeguards were all deployed to locate and rescue the man, Ward said.
According to Ward, lifeguards eventually found the man in between rocks on the jetty, and were able to remove him and transport him to dock.
The man had multiple unspecified injuries, and was taken in an ambulance to Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, then airlifted to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, Ward said.
No personnel were injured during the rescue, Ward said.
