Watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew at 10:25 p.m. The aircrew arrived on scene at 12:39 a.m., hoisted the kayaker into the helicopter and returned to Air Station San Francisco.
“Recognizing that the situation was beyond his capabilities and calling for assistance allowed our crews to reach him in time for a successful rescue,” said Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Kroll, a Coast Guard spokesperson. “This shows that even experienced mariners with proper safety equipment can get into trouble on the ocean, which is why having the right equipment and knowing when and how to use it is so important.”
The survivor was reported to be in good condition with no medical concerns.
