NORTH BEND, Ore. (AP) — The Coast Guard has rescued another kayaker along the Oregon coast after his watercraft overturned.
The agency diverted a helicopter crew on Tuesday to Sunset Bay, southwest of the entrance to Coos Bay, to rescue a 64-year-old man.
The crew spotted the man wearing a life jacket and floating next to his overturned kayak.
A Coast Guard rescue swimmer hoisted the man into the helicopter and he was delivered to local medics on shore. He was not identified.
On Sunday, a Coast Guard helicopter crew rescued a 65-year-old man after his kayak overturned at the entrance to the Salmon River near Otis, Ore. A rescue swimmer was able to reach that man, who was trapped on some rocks at the river entrance.
