Lincoln City: Water rescue off SW 15th

north lincoln fire rescue banner

North Lincoln Fire Rescue was called to the end of SW 15th this afternoon on a report that witnesses saw a male swimmer a ways off shore being battered by the incoming tide up against some rocks. North Lincoln Fire Rescue Captain Jim Kusz said he was told that witnesses managed to get the, by then, injured man back onto the beach. They say he’d been pushed against the rocks by a number of waves and may have suffered a head wound.

The swimmer, said to be about 30 years old, was quickly loaded aboard a PacWest Ambulance and rushed to North Lincoln Hospital where he was being treated for his injuries. With late summer water temperatures ranging in the upper 50’s, Capt. Kusz said he may or may not have been hypothermic.

Capt. Kusz once again reminds everyone that the ocean is not a swimming pool and that rocks don’t move and waves do…sometimes treacherously. He said those in the water should know whether a tide is going out or coming in because the surges can be quite powerful. He also reminds swimmers to be alert for rip currents that can suck a person out beyond the breakers in less than a minute.
