Officials: Sunbather Run Over, Killed By Police

OXNARD, Calif. -- Authorities say two police officers patrolling the beach in an SUV ran over and killed a sunbather in Oxnard, Calif.

A police commander said the officers did not immediately realize they had run over the woman and continued driving.

The officers, who were not immediately identified, had stopped on a small berm of sand to watch a swimmer whom they believed to be in distress. When they saw the swimmer was fine, they drove over the berm and apparently over the woman's head.

A witness called the Oxnard Fire Department to report the woman was bleeding on the beach just south of the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort. The woman appeared to be in her 30s and carried no identification. She's believed to have been a hotel guest.

I believe the story was slightly changed to keep the beach goers a bit more calm.
A few words here or there & whos to know.

The officers, who were not immediately identified, had stopped on a small berm of sand to watch a swimmer whom they believed to be Undressed.
When they realized the swimmer wasnt, they drove over the berm and apparently over the woman's head.

Yikes. That's bad. It's hard to believe that the policemen weren't paying more attention.
