Over the weekend Nehalem Fire-Rescue responded to the beach for a woman who was crushed by a large driftwood log when it was struck by a “sneaker wave” while she was sitting on it.
The woman sustained serious injuries and was flown to Portland for treatment.
NEVER turn your back on the ocean! The beach may be called a park, but it really isn’t. It’s raw Mother Nature and she can kill in an instant. This woman was very, very lucky.
