The Los Angeles County coroner's office has identified the man who died late Wednesday when powerful waves swept him and three other people into the ocean along Redondo Beach.
It is unclear what the group was doing on the wall at King Harbor, but shouts for help began about 11:13 p.m., said Division Chief Mark Winter of the Redondo Beach Fire Department. Fire officials believe strong waves pushed the group from the break wall into the sea, then back into calmer waters in the harbor.
