Golden Gate National Recreation Area (CA)
Woman Killed In Fall From Coastal Trail

Park Police officers, park lifeguards and San Francisco Fire Department personnel responded to a report of two people stuck on the rocks near Painted Rock on the Coastal Trail on Thursday, October 30th.

A man was found on the rocks about 150 to 200 feet below the trail; there was a woman below him, but she was not immediately visible.

Park lifeguards swam to a spot below and found the woman’s body on the beach there. Lifeguards and firefighters swam her body out to a waiting fireboat. Meanwhile, firefighters set up a long-haul rope system and brought the man back up to the Coastal Trail.

Park Police detectives took a statement from the man and then transported him to his residence. The woman’s body was taken to the San Francisco Medical Examiners’ Office.

The man and woman had hiked into a closed area that was posted with a sign stating that the area was dangerous and that people had fallen from that location, a fall of approximately 300 feet. The woman fell to her death; the man became stranded while trying to reach her. The case remains under investigation.
