THE SALINA JOURNAL GREAT PLAINS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1997 KS. ; The Associated Press Monterey County (Calif.) authorities remove the body of 65-year-old Judith Rombold, who drowned in Big Sur, Calif., Friday while trying to save her drowning granddaughter. Rombold, her daughter and granddaughter, all from Kansas, died In the tragedy. A KANSAS TRAGEDY Three generations of family drown in California By MARIA SUDEKUM FISHER The Associated Press B ack in Ottawa, Kan., the biggest body of water around is Lake Pomona, a placid blue-green expanse where the waves reach — maybe — 2 feet, and that's when the wind is really blowing. ' Nothing in Ottawa could have prepared lO-yeai'-old Ivy Pacheco and her mother and grandmother for the riptides,.whirlpools, rocks and crashing 6-foot waves at Big Sur in California, 130 miles south of San Francisco. ; The cold waters took the lives of all three on Ivy's first trip to the^ ocean last wee^. Ivy ventured into the surf and was pulled oiit to sea. Her mother, Mary "Paulie" Pacheco, 38, and grandmother, Judith Rombold, 65, Wichita, died trying to rescue her. • "Three at/once is quite a load to bear," said 1 Manuel Pacheco Jr., Ivy's uncle. ; The family in Ottawa is trying to comfort David Pacheco, Ivy's father, a construction worker who couldn't make the trip, and her younger. brother, 8-year-old T.J., who witnessed the drownings. , "I don't know if it's set in. He's usually a really happy little boy, but he's'not smiling a lot right now," Manuel Pacheco said. Mary Pacheco and Judith Rombold had taken Ivy and T.J. last week for a long-awaited vacation to California to watch Mary Pacheco's "I'm so mad about this whole thing. Three lives! Can you believe it?"" Terry Prince surfer who pulled Ivy Pacheco from water sister run in a marathon. "It was the little girl's first time going to the ocean. She was real excited," Manuel Pacheco said. He said he believes it was the first time Mary Pacheco had seen the Pacific Ocean. He didn't know whether the grandmother had seen the ocean. On Friday morning, they headed to Pfeiffer Beach. The waves were pounding on huge rocks jutting out into the ocean as T.J. scampered ahead on the sand and Ivy strolled with the women. Then the girl ventured in. "Really this is not a swimming beach, and we do not advertise it as a swimming beach," said Bruce Emmens, district ranger for the Monterey Ranger District, which oversees the beach. "The conditions shout, 'Watch out!' " A riptide grabbed the girl, pulling her away from shore. Her grandmother jumped in to help her. Then Mary Pacheco went hi after them both. A mile up the beach, surfer Terry Prince was having his morning coffee when a friend said there was a report on the scanner that three people were drowning. "I pulled on a wet suit and stuffed a board in the car," said Prince, 48. "I knew minutes were important here. That is a treacherous beach. We're pulling people out of it all the time — always tourists. Locals won't swim there. They know better." He could not see the three when he arrived at the.beach, but paddled out and found Ivy. A medic on the beach got Ivy's heart beating. Prince went back in with two other people to get Mary Pacheco and Judith Rombold. Both women were dead when they were pulled from the water. Ivy died that night at a hospital. The beach has no warning signs and no lifeguard. "I'm so mad about this whole thing," Prince said. "Three lives! Can you believe it?" The surfer returned to the beach after the drown- ings to put up a sign that reads: "Danger. Undercurrent. Riptide." In Ottawa, Ivy's father is hoping there will be some changes. "He was hoping a tragedy like this, (for people) not familiar with the coastline, maybe they can be forewarned not to get in. Maybe they can get some signs," Manuel Pacheco said. Back at Pomona State Park in Kansas, Gladys Streeter's office overlooks the lake. "People around here might get into trouble when a boat capsizes, or maybe if they've been drinking and fall in," the office assistant said. "It wouldn't be anything like an ocean."
