Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE TWO - — Sacra­mento Bee

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.
