Just In: Person Dies After Boat Collision Near Angel Island

A person has died after a sailboat and a powerboat collided near Angel Island on Thursday. CBS Bay Area reported that the collision between a sailboat with four people aboard and a 25-ft powered center-console vessel with one person aboard was reported to the USCG at around 2:09 p.m. Thursday.

“The person on the center-console vessel fell into water and was rescued by people on sailing vessel,” CBS wrote. “Authorities said the victim was unresponsive. A Golden Gate Coast Guard crew took control, bringing the individual to emergency responders in Tiburon for medical treatment.

“San Francisco police later confirmed that in spite of life saving efforts by bystanders and medical personnel, the victim succumbed to their injuries at the scene.”
