Two men and a woman were on the rocks near the beach when a wave swept them into the ocean shortly before 5 p.m., according to authorities. Firefighters raced to the scene, pulled the three out of the water and performed CPR, but they all died at the scene. “Unfortunately all three were fatally injured due to the incident,” Capt. Brian McGrath, with the Ventura County Fire Department, said. Investigators said family was with the victims when just before they were pulled into the water. It was believed they might have been fishing. “The weather conditions and the wave conditions are very similar to what you see now,” McGrath said. “The waves were not abnormally large for the timeframe and the tide was as normal.” VCFD along with the sheriff’s department brought out chaplains to help family members in shock over what they saw.
