Sands Beach in Santa Barbara.

We'd like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Lindsay Rose…may she rip in heaven.

As reported on www.noozhawk.com

Lindsay Rose, a 15-year-old surfer who was found unconscious in the water at Sands Beach last week, died Sunday at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

Rose, a Dos Pueblos High sophomore, was discovered by other surfers face down in the water around 5:15 p.m. April 1 at Sands Beach near Devereux Slough. Paramedics were called to the scene and performed CPR and defibrillation, according to eyewitness accounts.

She was transported to Cottage Hospital where she was reportedly breathing on her own. Doctors put her in a drug-induced coma to help her recuperate, but she died Sunday afternoon.
