OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A Port of Oakland longshoreman died after his truck plunged into the San Francisco Bay.

The Coast Guard said a white pickup truck went into the water near Berth 30 shortly after 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Oakland Police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson says a team of divers found the truck submerged in about 50 feet of water.

Divers attached cable lines from a crane to pull the vehicle out and the longshoreman was pronounced dead at the scene.

His name has not been released.

Port officials said that all work at the port would be suspended for 24 hours following the fatal accident.
