San Francisco, CA—In the article titled “San Francisco Boat Accident: Two dead after falling overboard near Cliff House” it was incorrectly reported that the victim’s last name is Easterly. The victim’s correct last name is Easterling.
As previously reported, the Easterling’s were aboard their 33-foot-long sailboat named Barcarolle, and were headed for the Golden Gate when they somehow ended up overboard. An alert waiter at the Cliff House noticed the distressed sailboat around 4:30 p.m., and called authorities, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.
On Monday, the body of 59-year-old Jeffery Easterling washed ashore on San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. The body of Jeffery’s wife, Elizabeth Easterling, was recovered Sunday night.
There were reportedly no witnesses to the accident. A full investigation is underway.
