PITTSBURG (AP) — Authorities are continuing to search for a California man who hasn’t surfaced after jumping off a boat into cold water to save a child.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the man jumped into the water on Saturday near the Pittsburg Marina.
The 59-year-old had been fishing with who is believed to be his 9-year-old son and another adult.
The man jumped into the water after the boy had fallen in. A Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokesman says the man never made it back into the boat.
The boy has recovered after being treated for hypothermia at a nearby hospital.
