Woman dead and two teenagers missing after being swept to sea
SHELTER COVE, Calif. (AP) – A Canadian woman drowned and two teenagers were missing after they were swept into the Pacific Ocean while on a high school sightseeing trip on the far Northern California coast.
The group, from William Aberhart High School in Calgary, was visiting a remote beach about 12:30 p.m. Saturday near Shelter Cove, about 200 miles north of San Francisco, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The woman, apparently a chaperone who was not identified, slipped in the surf and was pulled out. Four others jumped in after her, according to spokesman Michael Burgess.
The Coast Guard recovered the body of the woman, who was in her 40s, and rescued a 17-year-old male and a 37-year-old male.
Both were taken to the Mendocino Coast Hospital where their conditions were not immediately available. They were not identified.
The Coast Guard continued to search Sunday for two 17-year-old males who were not identified.
