The personnel pulled one of the men from the surf, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. The other man had to be hauled off a steep bluff he had managed to reach.
“Because of high surf, lifeguards and firefighters performed a cliff rescue to get (him),” Munoz said. “Fortunately, there were no injuries that required hospitalization.”
A Nevada man who ventured into the roiling ocean at the mouth of the San Diego River was not so fortunate, dying after lifeguards pulled him from the water.
