A 20 month old child has taken a ten foot fall onto concrete and has obviously suffered serious head injuries. Yachats Fire EMTs are on scene and have called for either REACH or LIFEGUARD medical helicopters to pick the child up at The Adobe. Weather between the valley and the coast may require LIFEGUARD out of Tillamook to shoot down the coast and pick him up and fly him to a trauma center.

10:26am
Update: Medics surveyed the weather around Yachats and decided to rush the injured child to the landing pad at PCH Newport and load the child aboard whichever medical chopper can make it in there.

The child may have fallen at a nearby vacation rental. Circumstances aren’t yet clear.

10:37pm
The cloud cover is too thick. Both REACH and LIFEGUARD choppers have declined service. The child is aboard an ambulance headed for PCH in Newport. It is not known if they will stop there or proceed as fast as possible to a trauma center in the valley

Coast Guardsmen are just like cops! Always on duty!

Coast Guardsmen. They can't help it... they just keep saving lives.

Coast Guardsmen.
They can’t help themselves…they just keep on saving lives.

When Coast Guardsman Dana Gagliardi heard the unmistakable cries for help near the north jetty in Florence Saturday afternoon he instantly went into rescue “auto pilot.” Gagliardi ran down the beach where two boys were being swept offshore by a strong rip current. The off-duty guardsman dove into the surf and muscled his way out to one of the boys. Gagliardi told him to grab on to his back and proceeded to swim cross-wize across the rip current. He got the boy back to the beach just fine.

While all this was going on the other boy managed to return to shore on his own.

By then a Coast Guard rescue helicopter and a motorlifeboat were nearly on scene but learned that one of their off duty guardsman remembered what line of work he’s in and literally jumped right in.

Gagliardi is from Massachusetts. He enlisted in the Coast Guard just last year and was assigned to Coast Guard Station Siuslaw River last December.

So far so good.
