Coast Guard suspends search for man who jumped off boat after lost hat


Coast Guard officials have suspended their search for a man who jumped off a boat near the Antioch Bridge to retrieve his lost hat.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports officials suspended the search Sunday for the man, who authorities are identifying only as in his mid-50s.

The man jumped off a 20-foot recreational boat Saturday after his hat flew off.


Coast Guard spokeswoman Loumania Stewart says the boat’s operator circled back to pick up the man but could not find him.

Crews looked for the man into the night, then resumed a search by air and water Sunday morning.
