Second man swept away at beach near Davenport

The body of a 30-year-old man was recovered after he was swept into the water Tuesday afternoon at Panther Beach, south of Davenport.

The death came two days after a 26-year-old San Jose man disappeared in the surf at Davenport Beach, about 1½ miles up the coast. He has not been found.

In Tuesday’s incident, the man had been standing on rocks shortly before 4 p.m. when waves swept him into the water, according to tweets from the San Mateo-Santa Cruz unit of the California Department of Fire and Forestry Protection.

Rescuers from several agencies responded, and the man’s body was seen at 5:50 p.m. Swimmers had to wait several minutes for the tide to recede before they attempted the recovery.
