The man entered the water around 2 p.m. Wednesday and saved the dogs, but was then carried back into the water by another wave and slammed into nearby rocks, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.
He was found face-down and unresponsive in the water and paramedics performed CPR on him for around 10 minutes while transporting him to UCSD Medical Center, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
The man, later identified as Gregg Owens, was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit, where he was later pronounced dead, the Medical Examiner’s Office said Thursday.
