HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Calif. —
Two parents are dead and a 16-year-old is still missing Saturday night after being pulled into the water by big waves in Humboldt County.
The horrific incident happened around 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon at Big Lagoon about 32 miles north of Eureka.
State parks officials said the family tried to save the family dog who was pulled in from the beach by eight to ten foot waves.
Officials said the mother and father drowned and their bodies were recovered.
The United States Coast Guard said the daughter called police.
The dog was able to make it out of the water safely.
The U.S. Coast Guard had to stop searching for the 16-year-old boy Saturday night because of fog, The Times Standard said.
The Coast Guard said the helicopters were on standby and will continue searching in the dark if the fog lifts. Two 47-foot motor life boats are on scene searching for the missing youth.
