A 16 year old teenager and his parents died on Saturday, after they attempted to save their pooch at Big Lagoon Beach near Eureka, CA.
Gregory "Geddie" Kuljian was playing fetch with his dog, but the canine got too close to the water…and the 10 foot swells swept the pup out to sea.
Kuljian ran after the dog, but the waves swept him out to sea as well. Mom Mary Elena Scott and Dad Howard Gregory Kuljian tried to rescue their son, but they, too, fell victim to the ocean.
Miraculously, the dog made it back to shore alive and survived along with the daughter, 18 year old Olivia, as she did not enter the water.
The bodies of the parents washed up on shore later that day, but the teen has not been found. The Coast Guard suspended their search Sunday as the temperature of the water makes it nearly impossible to survive without a wetsuit.
