The Coast Guard has recovered the body of a San Francisco windsurfer found dead in ocean waters about 2 1/2 miles west of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Coast Guard spokesman Jeremy Pichette says a search was launched Saturday afternoon after a pedestrian on the bridge reported an unmanned surfboard floating in the water.
A helicopter spotted the body around 6:18 p.m., and a lifeboat pulled the unresponsive man on board, still in his wetsuit. Paramedics performed CPR but couldn't revive him.
Pichette said the man matched the description of a man who had been windsurfing in San Francisco Bay earlier in the day. His name was not released.
