A man and a child were pronounced dead in Sausalito after they were swept from the rocks Friday while fishing in the Marin Headlands, a fire spokesman said.
The incident was reported shortly before 5 p.m. by a third man who was also washed out by a large wave, said Southern Marin fire Battalion Chief Matt Barnes. The three were fishing on some rocks on the shoreline west of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The man got to shore, climbed to a road and flagged down a passerby for help. Firefighters launched a rescue boat and pulled the other man and the child from the water.
The boat brought the victims to the Coast Guard station at Horseshoe Cove, where they were pronounced dead, Barnes said.
Details about the relationship of the victims and where they lived were not available. The Marin County coroner's division is investigating the deaths.
The survivor was treated and released at the scene, Barnes said.
