A woman who died after becoming stranded on the rocks near Lands End on the northern coast of San Francisco on Thursday afternoon has been identified by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office as a 26-year-old Seattle resident.

Randi Salmon was pulled out of the water and pronounced dead at the scene on Thursday afternoon.

A second victim, identified as a 27-year-old man, was pulled to safety from some rocks, according to San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge.
