Oregon Flooding Claims Second Victim

Heavy rains and flooding have claimed their second victim in Oregon - a 16-year-old boy whose body was pulled from South Deer Creek on Sunday after he fell from a rubber raft and drowned.

Wayne Mansfield Jr. wore no life jacket and could not swim, according to Douglas County sheriff’s deputies.

He and a friend, Chris Coulombe, 12, launched the boat about 3 p.m. Saturday. Coulombe was able to grab a floating log and swim to shore.

The National Weather Service on Sunday continued flood warnings for the Coquille, Siuslaw, Marys, Luckiamute, Tualatin and Santiam rivers.
