    ASTORIA, Ore. – The Coast Guard hoisted a person from the water off Sunset Beach near Warrenton, Ore., Friday, May 17, 2013.

    Coast Guard Sector Columbia River received a call reporting a distressed teenage female off Sunset Beach at approximately 12:50 p.m.

    Sector Columbia River sent an already airborne MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Astoria to the scene. The helicopter crew arrived at approximately 1 p.m. to find a male struggling to rescue the imperiled female in the surf approximately 100 yards off Sunset Beach.

    The helicopter crew lowered a rescue basket and the man was able to load the woman into the basket for a hoist. The crew then hoisted the woman to the helicopter and transported her to Air Station Astoria in Warrenton, Ore., where she was placed in the care of awaiting local EMS.
