29-Year-Old Surfer Dies At Ocean Beach

A 29-year-old man died on Sunday evening while surfing at Ocean Beach. According to the Examiner, a Fire Department surf rescue team was dispatched to the beach around 6:30pm, and though they tried to revive the man, they were unable to do so. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

The medical examiner's office has identified the man as Jason Zumbo. It's unclear whether he was affected by surfing conditions, or experienced a medical event while in the water.
