The U.S. Coast Guard has brought the search to a halt for a 54-year-old man who was swept into the ocean by a wave at Martins Beach in California. The incident took place on Saturday near Half Moon Bay, a coastal city located approximately 30 miles south of San Francisco. Simultaneously, efforts were underway to locate a 5-year-old girl also carried away by the same wave.

Heartbreaking Outcome for Young Girl

Confirmation from the Coast Guard reveals that San Mateo County fire personnel successfully recovered the young girl. Unfortunately, she was transported to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead.

Exhaustive Search Efforts: Coast Guard

Despite the exhaustive efforts of Coast Guard search crews from Air Station San Francisco, Station Golden Gate, and Coast Guard Cutter Hawksbill, covering an expansive area of 100 square miles, the missing man’s identity remains undisclosed, and his location remains unknown.

Difficult Decision to Suspend Search

The decision to suspend the search was made on Sunday at 12:38 p.m. Capt. Jordan Baldueza, the deputy commander of Coast Guard Sector San Francisco, acknowledged the difficulty of this choice. He emphasized that, despite nearly 24 hours of intensive searching, there were no sightings of the missing individual.

Condolences Extended

Baldueza expressed heartfelt condolences to the family and friends affected by this tragic event. The suspension of the search marks a somber conclusion to the extensive efforts to locate the man swept away by the powerful wave.
