SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A 14-year-old boy has died on Monday afternoon after he was pulled from the water during a rescue at San Francisco’s Crissy Field, according to the San Francisco Fire Department. 

There were reports made to officials of the boy last seen struggling in the water.

The fire department was using jet skis, boats and their ladder truck to spot the boy in the water.

A fire official says that a group of teenagers were in the water, one of which reportedly doesn’t know how to swim. His friends attempted to help him when he began to struggle but went under water. 

Officials have closed the beach and asked all beach goers to leave the area.
