• Pacific Grove Woman Rescued From Davenport Sea Cave

    The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that a 53-year-old Pacific Grove woman was rescued from a sea cave in Davenport Saturday afternoon. State park officials said she slipped and fell while exploring the cave with a friend.

    The accident happened at about 3 p.m., said Mike McMenamy, public safety superintendent for the state parks.

    The cave has two openings and it runs underneath Highway 1, McMenamy said. Authorities had trouble finding the woman at first because she couldn’t be seen since she was still in the cave. But after talking with the person who reported it, they eventually found her in the cave, McMenamy said.

    The woman was transported by ambulance to Dominican Hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries. Her name has not been released.

    With more people at the beaches over the holiday weekend, McMenamy said beachgoers should always swim near a lifeguard and never turn their backs on the water.
