A 13-year old boy who fell off an 80′ rock into the ocean was rescued this week by the Coast Guard near Brookings.

Group North Bend Coast Guard received a report at approximately 3:50 p.m. Wednesday stating the boy had fallen from a rock into the waters of Macklyn Cove. Air Station North Bend launched an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew and Station Chetco River launched a 25-foot response boat crew as well as a mobile land unit. The Curry County, Ore., Sheriff’s Department, Brookings Fire and Rescue, Brookings Police Department and Cal-Ore Life Flight also dispatched rescue personnel.

The Coast Guard 25-foot response boat crew and other rescue assets arrived on scene and found the boy in the water, seriously injured and surrounded by a cluster of rocks. Rescue personnel were able to reach the boy to place him in a litter and wait with him for the Dolphin helicopter crew to arrive. They arrived a short time later and hoisted the boy up and into the hovering chopper which whisked him away to the Brookings Airport where they were met by a ground ambulance crew. The very lucky boy was admitted to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
