Lifeguards rescue kayaker at La Jolla Shores

A kayaker who got caught in waves that tossed him from his vessel was hospitalized Sunday, a San Diego lifeguard lieutenant said.

The victim came too close to the surf line around 1:25 p.m. at La Jolla Shores, and he was thrown around by the waves, Lt. Andy Lerum said.

The man was having difficulty breathing after he was rescued by lifeguards, and was sent to a hospital, Lerum said.
