A 15-year-old boy who was pulled from the ocean after jumping off a cliff in the Sunset Cliffs area and struggling in the water has died, according to multiple media reports.
Lifeguards responded to a call around 10:40 a.m. Wednesday after witnesses reported seeing the teenager in the ocean after jumping off Pappy’s Point along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard near Osprey Street, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
NBC7 reported that the cliff was about 20 feet high.
Lifeguards searched the water for nearly an hour before finding the boy underwater and taking him to shore, where medics performed CPR, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
The boy, a 10th grade student at Sweetwater High School, was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, NBC7 reported.
