POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE, Calif. (AP) -- A fisherman is dead after getting dragged into the ocean by large, strong surf while trying to retrieve an ice chest.
The Marin Independent Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1jj0kVH ) that witnesses on Sunday reported seeing the man disappear into the sea at North Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore.
Park spokesman John Dell'Osso tells the newspaper that onlookers lost sight of the fisherman just seconds after he went in.
The U.S. Coast Guard and Sonoma County Sheriff's Office launched a search, found the man's body and brought it back to shore.
The Marin County coroner and park service are investigating the death, and did not identify the man.
