EL SALVADOR (CBSLA) — The body of a man from Torrance was found Saturday afternoon after reportedly being killed in a surfing accident in El Salvador the Thursday before, authorities said.

The man, identified as 36-year-old Matthew Reid of Torrance, was surfing at Playa Mizata, a beach in El Salvador known in the surf community.

The cave where his body was believed to be in was reportedly inaccessible due to high tide after his accident.

Though his body was located, recovery efforts were still ongoing as of Saturday afternoon.

A GoFundMe page was created to help Reid’s wife and two children with unforeseen expenses.
