A surfer was spotted floating unconscious in the water near Ocean Beach around 1 p.m. yesterday. He was later identified as Jonathan Luhn, age 44, after being pulled from the water by another surfer, or someone on the beach. The Mercury News says he was a resident of San Jose.

The rescuer performed CPR, however it sounds like Luhn was already dead and was pronounced dead later at UCSF medical center. An autopsy is scheduled for today. [CBS]
