MALIBU, Calif.—A 28-year-old man who was kite surfing over the Pacific Ocean off Topanga State Beach has died after being pulled unconscious from the water by a lifeguard.

City News Service reports that rescuers were called to the beach south of Malibu at about 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Lt. Robert Wiard of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Malibu/Lost Hills Station says a lifeguard who was watching the man and another kite surfer saw the victim hit the water.

Moments later the victim's rig became airborne, but he stayed down.

Wiard says the lifeguard paddled out and found the man face-down in the water.

The lifeguard brought the victim to shore and performed CPR until Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics arrived and took the man to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The man's name wasn't immediately released.
