Lifeguards rescue unconscious man off Cove

An unconscious man found floating off La Jolla Coves on Saturday was hospitalized in unknown condition, a San Diego lifeguard official said.

A kayaker spotted the swimmer around 2 p.m. near a buoy about a quarter

mile from the La Jolla Cove shores, said San Diego lifeguard Lt. John

Greenhalgh.

Lifeguards got the man, believed to be between 40 and 60 years old, to

shore, where medics performed CPR.

The man, still unconscious, was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital

in La Jolla.
