Despite desperate warnings from officials to stay away from the beaches, rescue crews pulled five people to safety after they ventured too close to the ocean waters churned up by the surge from Saturday’s tsunami. San Francisco firefighters deployed rescue swimmers Saturday afternoon when a group of surfers were spotted in distress at Kelly’s Cove near the Cliff House on Ocean Beach. “At 2:40 PM today a female adult surfer was rescued at Ocean Beach by #SFFD and did not require medical care. In total, we had 25 safety contacts and 3 rescues today,” the fire department tweeted. But the rescue wasn’t easy even for the experienced SFFD swimmers. The woman was taken to China Beach where she was treated by paramedics. Her condition was not released.
