National Park Service (NPS) rangers helped to rescue a man from northern California’s South Beach.

The agency said Tuesday that at approximately 12:30 p.m. PDT the park was notified by the Marin County Sheriff’s Department that an adult male was reported to be unresponsive after being found face down in the surf. 

He had been surfing there with friends who pulled him from the water and began CPR.

The NPS said that rangers responded to the scene and took over patient care, eventually detecting a pulse and that the victim was breathing.
