SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco Fire Department responded to multiple reports of overturned kayaks in the bay on Memorial Day. Two adults and two children were rescued after their kayaks capsized.
The San Francisco Fire Department water rescue teams, the U.S. Coast Guard and San Francisco Police all coordinated to rescue a family in the water 300 yards from Candlestick Point, just off Hunters Point, SFPD said.
The two children were hospitalized for hypothermia. The adults were not injured. All four are expected to fully recover. A coast guard helicopter was used in the rescue.
The fire department did not immediately know how the kayaks capsized, but said it was windy and choppy on the bay in that area. The area of the incident is off of Hunter’s Point.
