The Coast Guard helicopter and Marin County firefighters were able to retrieve the survivor from the rocky shoreline, which could not be reached by boat due to the high surf, but it was more than an hour before the victim's body was spotted by a news helicopter in the area, Pittman said.
Emergency personnel rushed to the area after receiving a report of two kayakers crashing into the rocks close to Dillon Beach on Wedesday. One kayaker was rescued, but one of them, Nicholas A. Anast, 55, was killed in the accident. The kayakers were coming from Nick's Cove when they crashed. Anast was a professor at Santa Rosa Junior College.
