Lands End drowning victim identified
A woman who died after becoming stranded on the rocks near Lands End on the northern coast of San Francisco Thursday afternoon has been identified by the San Francisco medical examiner’s office as a 26-year-old Seattle resident.
Randi Salmon was pulled out of the water and pronounced dead at the scene on Thursday afternoon. A second victim, identified as a 27-year-old man, was pulled to safety from some rocks, according to San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge.
Fire crews responded around 12:10 p.m. to reports of two people stuck on rocks over a cliff in the area of El Camino Del Mar and 32nd Avenue, Talmadge said.
Rescue swimmers with the fire department and some boat crews responded to the scene. Both the U.S. Coast Guard and National Parks Service were also notified.
