On the evening of Feb. 8, family members, friends, classmates and community members performed a paddle-out at Salt Creek Beach in honor of Aliso Niguel High School senior Kyle Escobar. Escobar died unexpectedly on Feb. 5.

“He was a caring person who always put others before himself” commented friend and event organizer Noah McPherson.

More than 130 people participated in the sunset paddle-out organized by friends and Escobar’s water polo teammates. It is estimated that nearly 200 others remained on the sand.
