OSP received a report late Saturday afternoon of a paragliding accident at Cape Lookout State Park, 20 miles southwest of Tillamook.

Authorities say a para-glider launched from atop a cliff overlooking the beach and rapidly descended to the rocks below. The para-glider was identified as Clifton Westin, age 53, of Corvallis. WESTIN was observed on the rocks immediately after falling. But he was suddenly washed into the ocean by waves.

Emergency responders were unable to reach Westin from the shore. The US Coast Guard launched a helicopter and a motor life boat from the Tillamook Bay Station. Westin was recovered by the motor life boat crew and was unresponsive when brought on board the boat. He was pronounced deceased by medical personnel a short time later after lifesaving measures were performed by medical personnel.
