    Three Die in Attempt to Save Dog

    Three members of a Northern California family were killed over the weekend when they were swept out to sea in an attempt to save their dog. Howard Kulijan, 54, threw a stick toward the waves for their dog, only to have the waves swallow the pet. Kulijan, his wife, Mary Scott, 57, and their 16-year-old son, Gregory, all dove into the water to save the dog, only to be swept out to sea themselves as their 18-year-old daughter, Olivia, and Gregory’s girlfriend could only watch in horror. Both parents’ bodies have been recovered, but Gregory is still missing—although authorities called off the search for the teenager, saying no one could survive for long in the surf.
