Pacific Grove, Calif. • A woman suffering from hypothermia was rescued from a California bay after spending about 15 hours in a partially submerged raft, the Coast Guard said.
The woman had gone into Monterey Bay on Tuesday evening to watch the sunset, but at some point the engine on her raft came off, opening a hole that caused it to deflate, Coast Guard Lt. Joshua Dykman said.
A fisherman found her the next morning off Pacific Grove and called the Coast Guard. Water temperatures in the bay average about 54 degrees this time of year. Air temperatures were in the low 50s.
