Reports say that a man and his dog were walking on or near the Depoe Bay Bridge this afternoon when the dog suddenly either fell or jumped off the bridge. The owner tried to climb down some rocks at one end of the bridge in an attempt to rescue his pet, but he fell, hitting his head on some rocks. A passerby saw what happened and called 9-1-1. Depoe Bay Fire Rescue raced to the scene and climbed down and got him back up to the road and into an awaiting ambulance. No word on severity of injuries.
Meanwhile the dog was spotted, deceased, still floating in the water.
