REMEMBERING SEAU

Fans and NFL players remember Junior Seau with a paddle-out on the California coast.

Oceanside fire officials say a woman in her 50s was seen floating in the water Sunday afternoon. Lifeguards brought the woman to shore, where she was given lifesaving efforts and taken to a hospital.

She'd joined hundreds of people who paddled surfboards and kayaks near Seau's Oceanside home in memory of the football player, who shot himself last week.
