Man Rescued Off Coyote Point

SAN MATEO, Calif.- The Coast Guard, working with the Foster City Fire Department and Coyote Point Marina Harbormaster, rescued a 20 year-old male from the San Francisco Bay Sunday evening.

At 7:20 p.m., a Coast Guard Auxiliary mobile unit reported seeing a person floating 150 yards off of Coyote Point in San Mateo County. The Coast Guard immediately launched a 25-foot boat from Station San Francisco at Yerba Buena Island. The Coast Guard Auxiliarist remained on scene to maintain visual contact with the person in the water, and serve as a liaison between the Coast Guard and local authorities.

At 7:48 p.m., the Coyote Point Harbormaster got underway with two members of the Foster City Fire Department, and upon arriving on scene, was able to bring the man onboard the boat. The man was transferred to the Coast Guard boat, and taken to the Coyote Point Marina where San Mateo County Emergency Medical Services were waiting.

The man was taken to Mills Peninsula Medical Center, where he is reported to be conscious and in stable condition.
