…if you don’t wear a life jacket….

Crabber not wearing a life jacket died…

On Friday at approximately 2:20 P.M., emergency personnel responded to a capsized boat at the mouth of Netarts Bay.

Preliminary investigation revealed that two people, Srun Hong (53) and Lyda Hong (41) both of Fairview, were crabbing in a small inflatable boat with an electric motor when the boat capsized in heavy surf. 

Lyda Hong was recovered in the surf by a US Coast Guard helicopter crew.  She was wearing a life jacket and was transported to Tillamook Regional Medical Center.  She was treated and released. 

Srun Hong, who was not wearing a life jacket, has not been located and is presumed drowned.  

                                        They don’t call them LIFE-jackets for nothing.
