Oxnard police seek woman who saved surfer's life

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities in Ventura County are seeking the identity of a woman who helped revive a surfer who was knocked unconscious because they want to thank her.

The Ventura County Star says (http://bit.ly/1mCQ0L0 ) the surfer was spotted face down in the water off Mandalay Beach in Oxnard Saturday morning.

Police Sgt. Rob Flinn says the man had an accident and had not been breathing for several minutes.

A surfer and a body-boarder paddled out to the incapacitated man and brought him to shore.

One of them was Lawrence Manion, retired police chief of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

With a woman who had seen what was happening, Manion gave CPR to the unconscious surfer.

Flinn says CPR undoubtedly saved the man's life and police want to thank the woman.

Flinn says the surfer was recovering at a hospital.
