Two Stranded Women Rescued By Coast Guard


Two women were rescued after getting stranded on a rock. Watch standers at the Coast Guard received a request for assistance at 5:50pm from police, who received a mobile phone call for help from the stranded women. The Coast Guard helicopter arrived on scene at approximately 6:30pm and deployed a rescue swimmer to assist the women.
 
The Coast Guard aircrew hoisted the two women off of a rock after they became stranded by the rising tide at the Hug Point State Recreation Site north of Cannon Beach on Thursday night, October 12th. They were safely transferred to emergency service personnel. The Coast Guard reminds all who visit the beach to be aware of tidal conditions. Rising tides can quickly strand people along the rugged coastline.
