Posted on Saturday, October 15, 2011 6:15pm

A man suffered serious injuries when he ended up in the ocean at Ventura Harbor, and was trapped between a large fishing boat, and a dock.

It happened just after 11:30 Friday night.  Bystanders spotted the man, and unsuccessfully tried to rescue him.

Ventura firefighters, and Harbor Patrol officers reached him, lowered him to a paddleboard, and then got him to a Harbor Patrol boat so he could be taken to shore, and then a hospital.

The man, who was in his 50‘s, hasn’t been identified by authorities.  There’s no word on how he ended up in the ocean.
