ALAMEDA, Calif. —
Firefighters were able to rescue a kite surfer who got stuck in the San Francisco Bay, just off the shore in Alameda, Saturday evening, fire officials said.
Crews responded to a report of a kite surfer in distress at the Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, near the 1800 block of Shore Line Drive, at about 7:20 p.m., according to fire officials.
When firefighters arrived, they located the surfer about a half mile off shore and water rescue team members, in their rescue boat, went out to rescue him, officials said.
The rescue crew members were able to bring the surfer and his kite and board safely back to shore, according to officials.
No one was injured in the rescue.
