CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico -- Officials say a giant wave struck a pair of U.S. tourists strolling on the beach near the famous stone arch in the Pacific resort of Cabo San Lucas, killing a 65-year-old woman and leaving a 70-year-old man in serious condition.

State police say the two were walking back to their hotel when they were hit by the wave and dragged out to sea on Tuesday. They were rescued by Navy personnel. The woman was declared dead and the man was in serious condition Wednesday.

Authorities say the woman had a Wisconsin driver's license and the man had one from Nebraska, but it was unclear where they were currently living or whether next of kin have been notified.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says it has no information immediately available.
