Body found in ocean off Pismo Beach

July 2, 2012

Two men paddle boarding in the pacific ocean near Pismo Beach discovered the body of a 34-year-old man floating in the water on Sunday at 11:20 a.m.

Jonathan Blankeship of Pismo Beach is thought to have fallen off an ocean-side cliff in the area of Boeker Avenue.

The paddle boarders brought Blankeship of Pismo Beach to shore in an attempt to provide aid, but he was already deceased.

Pismo Beach police and the San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s office are conducting a joint investigation into the death.

    Ouch poor guy! Put another hotel there so this can’t happen again, to much coastal access for this guy, hope he wasn’t pushed, hope he didn’t jump, hope he didn’t fall, just wish it didn’t happen at all!
    And I hope you can tell I’m joking about another hotel.
