A man was rescued after falling into the ocean south of the Ocean Beach Pier, San Diego lifeguards said Monday.

A woman and two other people heard the man’s cries for help and jumped into the water at the foot of Santa Cruz Avenue and Bacon Street to save him, lifeguards said.

Anna Suzette Eblen said she heard the man’s cries for help and immediately jumped into the water to try and save him, reported 10News.

The victim was apparently climbing on some rocks at about 10:20 p.m. Sunday when he fell in to the chilly water, lifeguards said.

The man was transported to Mercy Hospital for treatment of respiratory problems and hypothermia, authorities said.
