As crews continue to search Thursday for a 14-year-old boy who was swept out to sea at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach on Wednesday afternoon, a 17-year-old surfer is being hailed as a hero for saving the boy’s father and cousin.

Tony Barbero, a 17-year-old junior at San Francisco’s St. Ignatius College Preparatory high school, was surfing at Ocean Beach near Lincoln Way just before 4 p.m. when he noticed a teenage boy and a man in the water. Barbero is the son of San Francisco fire Capt. Joe Barbero.

Tony Barbero said at first he thought the boy was just playing in the water, but then he saw a man struggling in the water “with a grim expression on his face” and pointing to the boy.

The surfer went up to the boy and heard him screaming for help. Barbero gave the boy his surfboard and then went over to the man, who was bobbing in the water.

The boy told Barbero that the man, his uncle, could not swim. “I was afraid he was dead,” Barbero said Thursday morning from his school.

Tony Barbero said he “instantly swallowed my fear,” went into “autopilot” and channeled his survival instincts. He grabbed the man, who was facedown in the water and not breathing, and pulled him onto shore. Paramedics were waiting on the beach and had to resuscitate the unconscious man with CPR.
