Point Pinos Pedestrian Plucked From Perilous Perch

Seaweed Rocks

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.

When The Fish Fight Back

Fish kicked three fishing buddies butts.

The three men, who were not injured, fell from the dinghy after failing to navigate the beach’s rocky outcrop, said Suzanne Guzzi, a schoolteacher from Modesto who witnessed the accident. The passengers were not identified.

The men managed to carry their fishing gear ashore, though the boat remained in the water, bobbing upside down, hooked on a rock about 11 a.m. The Pacific Grove Police Department responded to the call, and was followed by the Monterey Fire Department.
