The City Council has rejected a $110-million claim filed against the city by the parents of a woman who drowned near Three Arch Bay this summer. Lynn Scollard, 30, a Huntington Beach resident, had been walking through tide pools inside a sea cave with a friend on June 23 when she was swept off a rocky ledge and into treacherous underwater currents. The friend was able to climb to safety, but Scollard was unable to escape. Rescue workers pulled her body from the ocean more than an hour later.

One minute, Lynn Scollard was climbing the rocks with her friend John Griffin and marveling over how beautiful the ocean looked. The next, she was gone. As the two were climbing down an eight-foot-high rock above a tide pool at Three Arch Bay on Sunday, another climber yelled: "Take cover!
