Father And Son Drown On Fishing Trip

Father And Son Drown On Fishing Trip

( 4UMF NEWS ) Father And Son Drown On Fishing Trip:

A father and son died on a routine fishing trip after a huge wave swept the child into the icy waters of San Francisco Bay on Friday.

“My son! My son!” screamed Juan Escamillo-Rojas, 37, as he dived from a rock outcropping beneath the Golden Gate Bridge shortly after 4 p.m.

He tried to pull his 9-year-old boy, Juan Carlos Escamillo-Monroy, back to shore, but the avid fishermen were pulled out farther and farther, wave after horrifying wave.

Their friend Gabriel Cabrera, still on the rocky coastline of the Marin Headlands, cast a line out to his drowning friends. They held on to their only hope for salvation. Then, in the turbulent surf the bay, the line snapped.

With the help of a National Guard helicopter, a Tiburon Fire Department boat pulled Juan Carlos Escamillo-Monroy and his dad’s bodies from the water about an hour and a half after the fatal tragedy began.

Cabrera ditched the rod and ran uphill to a trailhead parking lot. He waved down a passing car and told the driver to call 911 at 4:52 p.m., according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

With the help of a National Guard helicopter, a Tiburon Fire Department boat pulled them from the water about 100 yards offshore about 5:25 p.m. But it was too late.

The father and son were pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearby Coast Guard station, reported The Associated Press.

The family gathered the following day in disbelief of the misfortune that struck the Escamillos, who lost everything they owned in a fire a week before Christmas, said sister-in-law Gloria Monroy.
