Fire officials are concerned about one teen who was pulled from the water at Ocean Beach Thursday afternoon with four others, San Francisco fire officials said.
Firefighters were called out at 1:30 p.m. following a report of a rescue at the Great Highway and Vicente Street, fire spokesman Lt. Jonathan Baxter said.
The ocean patrol from the National Park Service was first on the scene and retrieved three teens from the water.
Eight rescue swimmers from the fire department were sent in and retrieved the other two, Baxter said.
All five are from the East Bay and 15 to 17 years old. The five were swimming or wading and got caught in a rip current, according to Baxter.
“At this time we’re very concerned about one.”
The other four appear to be in the clear. One has been discharged from the hospital.
Two were unconscious when they were pulled from the water, Baxter said.
