About seven years ago, a man jumped into the ocean with his clothes and cowboy boots on to rescue two young girls who were being swept out to sea on their body boards by a riptide. "The kids were washed back in with the surf, but the young man drowned," recalled Denny Stoufer, lifeguard supervisor at Carlsbad State Beach, where the accident occurred. It was during the off-season, in autumn, and lifeguard service had been reduced to patrols of the 13-mile stretch, Stoufer said.
