PESCADERO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after he was pulled from the ocean near a Northern California lighthouse.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office says authorities began checking the area near Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero shortly before 5 a.m. Monday after receiving a report that a man was calling for help.

KPIX-TV says deputies and a Coast Guard helicopter checked the area and searchers found a man about 30 yards from shore south of the lighthouse.

He was floating unconscious and wasn’t breathing. Efforts to revive him failed.
