A Kern County man has been identified as the victim of a fatal boating accident in Morro Bay.
Christopher Castro of Bakersfield died Sunday morning, and a second person escaped with minor injuries when their boat overturned Sunday morning. Two surfers spotted the accident, and called 911. The 53 year old man was pulled from the water about 20 minutes later, but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
The cause of the accident near Morro Bay’s south jetty is still under investigation.
