Officials are unsure how a woman ended up naked in the water three miles off the Newport Beach coast before being rescued Sunday.

A pair of kayakers found the 28-year-old woman about 10 a.m. She was calling for help about three miles out from the Newport Harbor jetty, said Sgt. D.J. Haldeman of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Harbor Patrol.

According to Haldeman, the woman — whom authorities didn’t identify — was alone without a boat, a flotation device or even a bathing suit.

“She was completely naked,” he told Times Community News.
