Update by Santa Barbara City Fire Department
October 27, 2019

The Santa Barbara City Fire Department responded to multiple 911 calls for an ocean diver in distress near 1000 Steps. The solo lobster diver became tangled in kelp while ascending. Dubbed the “Cruz Incident”, 3 engines, a truck company, a Battalion Chief and a Harbor Patrol boat responded.

Upon arrival, the City Fire Rescue swimmer immediately began to make his way down the stairs to the water. Good Samaritans Henry Oh, Chris Orth, and Kyle Sieglein swam out from the shore and assisted. At the same time, an unidentified already in the water paddle boarder also made his way over and assisted. City Fire Rescue Swimmer Firefighter Billgren arrived to secure 24 year-old Correll Rambo, his gear, and safely bring the diver to shore.

The Santa Barbara City Fire Department would like to give thanks to the quick actions of citizens for their role in rescuing Mr. Rambo.
