Waves Take Two People Away At Bird Rock

Rough seas and big waves are best witness from the shore.

One person was swept off rocks into the surf and another is missing after apparently going into the water to rescue the first person, near Bird Rock on Saturday morning.

Tim Berget, Cal Fire San Benito-Monterey Unit information officer, said rescue and law enforcement crews searched for the missing pair for a couple of hours on Saturday after the initial call came in about 9:50 a.m. Berget said the incident occurred near Bird Rock, at 17 Mile Drive and Bird Rock Road.
