Was it the same failed lone kayaker from 2014?
A man who set out to paddle his kayak from Monterey to Hawaii failed to make it more than a few miles, only to have his kayak overturned in rough seas near Asilomar Beach Tuesday morning.
The 60-year-old unidentified man was unconscious and not breathing as rescuers performed CPR on him at around 7:15 a.m., Cal Fire Battalion Chief Mike Meddles told The Pine Cone.

Like that one? Better headline than man rescued from rocks. And don’t try to get there in your all wheel drive Subaru, either.
The rescue took about 45 minutes at about 5 p.m., according to Pacific Grove Police. Sgt. Jeff Fenton was patrolling the beach front when he was flagged down about an injured person on the rocks off the shoreline in the 1400 block of Ocean View Boulevard. “I got there and did a quick assessment about where he was located on the rocks,” said Fenton. “Then I requested (the fire department) and suggested they bring the ladder truck from one of their special rescues that we’ve done.”
Upon their arrival, police officers assisted Monterey Fire and American Medical Response by helping to hoist the 54-year-old man in and up from the rocks using ropes and pulleys. The man, who is from New York, was then transported to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

With the possibility of a hobbled Coast Guard on the Central Coast, local entities that have relied on the guard in the past may have to adjust their expectations.
“We utilize them but not on a routine basis,” said Sean James, the public safety superintendent for the California State Parks’ Monterey District.
“Monterey or Pacific Grove might put in a request where the Coast Guard is not available to respond,” said James.
There might be times when the State Parks’ rescue swimmers would be called in because a Coast Guard boat was not available. Water rescues in the Cannery Row, Point Pinos and Moss Landing areas benefit from the presence of the guard close by.

Man Overboard At Bird Rock
Lets go fishing off the coast in a 15 foot boat! Twenty foot high waves were crashing. Huh?
I sure hope these two get a full bill from the state for the cost of their stupidity.
