"**Near Drowning Stinson Beach**
This evening CHP H-30 responded with Stinson Beach Fire and Marin County Fire Department to a report of a drowning at Stinson Beach. Fire arrived at the scene as the patient was pulled from the water. The 20 year old male was unresponsive at the scene.
H-30 landed on the beach and transported the patient to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where the patient is currently undergoing treatment.
**We are happy to report that due to a quick response by Stinson Beach Fire and rapid transport by helicopter, the patient was alert and talking when our crew left John Muir.**"
