Correction: Yaquina Head Natural Area
The Coast Guard sent a helo to Yaquina Head Natural Area Saturday on what was thought to be a rescue, but wound up being an assumed suicide. An individual apparently went over a cliff near the lighthouse.
NewsLincolnCounty.com, as most other news media, doesn’t reveal the names of suicide victims unless there are extenuating circumstances. However, we thought the community should know what all the commotion was at Yaquina Lighthouse today and to again show the public the ends to which our valiant Coast Guard personnel will go to save lives.
