SAN DIEGO – A man who recently got out of quarantine from COVID-19 was rescued early Sunday after falling into the ocean at Sunset Cliffs.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department officials said the incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. The man reportedly was watching the bioluminescent tide when he got too close to the water and was hit by a wave and pulled out into the ocean.
The man, who has not been publicly identified, managed to swim to a rock under the cliffs where lifeguards rescued him with a paddleboard. He was hospitalized with some minor injuries.
