The Coast Guard rescued two surfers in distress near Cannon Beach, Ore., Monday. Coast Guard Sector Columbia River, located in Astoria, received a report from Cannon Beach Fire and Rescue at approximately 1:35 p.m., that two surfers were trapped in a small cove at the north end of Indian Beach at Ecola State Park, just north of Cannon Beach. Sector Columbia River diverted an already airborne MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew to the scene. The helicopter crew arrived on scene at approximately 1:45 p.m., and located the surfers on a rocky outcropping on the north side of the cove. The helicopter crew lowered a rescue swimmer from a hover approximately 125 feet above the rock and successfully hoisted both surfers to safety. The helicopter crew then returned the surfers to Indian Beach. No injuries were reported. For more information, please contact Petty Officer 3rd Class Nate Littlejohn at (816) 582-1725.
