A passerby reported a person floating face down in the water near the boat docks at Pedro Point on Thursday morning.
Pacifica police officers and North County Fire Authority responded to the scene and discovered an unidentified female, said Capt. Chris Clements of the Pacifica Police Department. It appeared the body had washed ashore. Medical personnel at the scene pronounced the victim deceased.
The subject was clothed and appeared to have been in the water for some time, Clements said in a prepared release. Thursday’s discovery marks the second time this month that emergency crews have taken a body from the surf in Pacifica. On June 4, the body of a Pacifica fisherman was found near Sharp Park.
The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office responded to Thursday’s incident and is working with Pacifica police’s investigative services division on this case. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Pacifica police department at (650) 355-4444 and refer to case no. 21-1471.
