Teen buried in sand dies and is brought back.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A California teenager was hospitalized after a sand tunnel she was digging collapsed on her.

Anjelica Marroquin was digging the tunnel at Doran Beach with her brother and nephew when it collapsed, burying the 17-year-old from her head to her knees.

The girl was trapped for nearly two minutes before family members managed to free her.

"They pulled her out, she was blue, her heartbeat was really, really light," beachgoer Anissa Barajas told San Francisco's KTVU-TV.
