Two separate rescues for a kayaker and a horse Saturday along the coast at Montana de Oro State park for CAL FIRE and Morro Bay Harbor patrol crews.
According to CAL FIRE SLO, around 3:30 p.m., a kayaker got knocked over by a wave at Spooners Cove. When he was unable to make it to shore, he began to call out for help.
A person on shore heard his pleas and called 9-1-1.
Morro Bay Harbor Patrol launched a rescue craft and brought the man to shore. He was treated on scene by CAL FIRE SLO. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance to be evaluated.
A witness onshore says the man was able to walk off the beach and was talking to rescuers.
Earlier in the day, at 1:40 p.m., CAL FIRE SLO crews were called to the park for a horse that fell into a ravine along the Bloody Nose Trail.
When crews arrived on scene, they called in a vet to sedate the horse and assist in rescuing it.
No word on the current condition of the kayaker or the horse.
