SURFSIDE BEACH — A 17- and a 19-year-old from Sugar Land were swept off the jetties by a large wave as they attempted to walk down the rocks Saturday afternoon, but rescued by nearby surfers who saw what happened, authorities said.

“The girls were rescued by some surfers and were transported to a hospital with cuts and bruises,” Surfside mayor Larry Davison said.
