    U.S. Coast Guard District 13

    The man was hoisted by a Coast Guard Sector North Bend aircrew at 6:22 p.m. and then safely transported to Toledo.

    A Lincoln City Fire Department crew contacted Coast Guard Sector North Bend Command Center personnel at approximately 1:30 p.m., requesting helicopter rescue assistance.

    Sector North Bend personnel dispatched the aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, who helped the fire department crew locate the individual, who fell approximately 100 feet down the cliff.

    The Lincoln County Ropes Rescue Team encountered difficulties during their rescue attempt and requested further assistance from the Coast Guard crew to help hoist him to safety.

    The man was reportedly in stable condition at the time of the hoist.
