2 Fishermen Swept Into Ocean, Drown

June 26, 1988

Two fishermen drowned Saturday when a large wave swept them into the ocean from rocks near the former Marineland site on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Department said.

The men were identified as Jin Xin Yu, 19, and Ron Sen Yu, 20, both of Los Angeles, a Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman said. The deaths are being investigated as accidental drownings.

A witness reported the incident to the Sheriff's Department about 10:20 a.m. One of the victims was taken by helicopter to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11:30 a.m.
