Two bodies found floating in the surf off Central California have been identified as a Hermosa Beach woman and her 7-year-old daughter.
San Luis Obispo County authorities identified them Friday as 43-year-old Marcia Harrigan and her daughter, Gillian.
They were found in the surf off San Simeon Bay on Thursday.
Firefighters suspect the two were swept off rocks by a rogue wave.
However, a sheriff's spokesman said the deaths are being classified as suspicious.
Autopsies are planned.
