The two men were identified as 47-year-old Jose Garcia, of Stanislaus County, and 24-year-old Jose Garcia Jr., of Merced, according to the San Francisco medical examiner's office.

They were reported to be in distress near the Beach Chalet Brewery and Restaurant at 1000 Great Highway at about 3:45 p.m., according to the fire department.
