Golden Gate bridge

A male windsurfer was found dead near the Golden Gate bridge, in San Francisco, USA.

The man has not been identified and was drifting in open ocean, 2,5 miles east from the bridge.

This area is very popular with windsurfers, but it is also known for its strong and tricky currents.

The body was recovered by the US Coast Guard and the windsurfer was pronounced dead by paramedics at the Coast Guard's Golden Gate Station.

If you are going to windsurf in San Francisco, near the bridge, please make sure you're wearing a Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), even if it is harder to control your board and sail.
