Emmanuel Palalay was pronounced dead at a local hospital following a rescue effort at the beach, a medical examiner’s investigator said.

San Francisco fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said fire crews responded to the beach near Balboa Street at about 2:30 p.m. after receiving reports that a surfer had been pulled from the water.

A lifeguard performed CPR and additional life-saving efforts were made as the victim was transported to the hospital.

Gregg Fishman, a Sacramento man who was at the beach at the time of the incident, said he saw two people in wetsuits pull a third person from the water.

He said he was about 100 feet away from the activity but said it appeared the victim was unconscious.
