Man killed trying to rescue dogs from high surf
A man walking his dogs with his wife Wednesday along Ocean Beach in San Diego didn’t hesitate when the high surf swept his dogs away, KNSD reported.
Gregg Owens went in after his dogs and pulled them to safety before the powerful current dragged him back out to sea, KGTV reported. The dogs are believed to be all right.
The heavy surf slammed Owens onto a rock jetty, where rescuers on personal watercraft “found him floating face down...about 20 minutes later,” KSWB reported. Owens, who had been visiting from Nevada, later died at a hospital. His age was not released.
