Utah Magazine Editor Fatally Swept Out To Sea In California

The editor of Salt Lake magazine has died after she was swept into the ocean in Northern California. Mary Malouf was visiting Humboldt Bay, located on the coast near the Oregon border. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office said she walked out on the North Jetty with her adult son to watch the waves Monday afternoon and a large wave suddenly swept over the wall, knocking them off their feet. Her son was able to cling to the jetty rocks but Malouf was swept out to sea. Malouf was a 66-year-old Texas native who had served as executive editor of the magazine since 2007.
