Four kitesurfers needed the assistance of fire and rescue squads after becoming stranded in the water in Foster City Friday evening.
A San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department battalion chief said two of the four ended up being able to make it back to shore safely, but two others needed assistance. One of them suffered from mild hypothermia and was treated on shore and released. The call for assistance came in at about 7:20 p.m. near the Mariners Point Golf Center in the 2400 block of East Third Avenue.
Rescue boats from San Mateo Consolidated Fire as well as from the Redwood City and South San Francisco fire departments and the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department assisted in the rescue.
