A 21-year-old Tulare man drowned last week in the Pacific Ocean near Eureka, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office said.
Matthew Bryant Garcia and a friend went swimming late Thursday afternoon off Samoa Beach. The friend called 911 when Garcia hadn't returned to the beach. Rescuers found him alive and performed CPR, but Garcia died a short time later at a Eureka hospital.
