Woman dies after fall from Alameda-Oakland ferry 

A woman died after apparently falling overboard from a ferry into the San Francisco Bay on Friday morning, according to a spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard.

At 9:17 a.m., the captain of an Alameda-Oakland Ferry vessel called the Peralta reported a possible man overboard west of Alameda Point, Lt. j.g. Jeremy Pichette said.

The Coast Guard launched two vessels and a helicopter to search the area.

At 9:56 a.m., the helicopter crew spotted someone in the water south of Yerba Buena Island and west of Alameda Point in Oakland, Pichette said.

A small boat was directed to the area, where the crew recovered a woman from the water and began administering CPR.

The woman was taken to Pier 39, where she was pronounced dead.
