Four pulled from ocean off Oregon

ASTORIA, Ore. – The Coast Guard rescued two children and two adults who were reportedly being swept out to sea off a north Oregon beach.

Petty Officer Nate Littlejohn said the agency got a call Wednesday from a witness who reported the four swimmers in distress off Rockaway Beach.

Coast Guard rescuers in a boat reached the swimmers and pulled all four from the water.

The spokesman said the four showed signs of hypothermia but all were in good condition. They were taken to the agency’s Tillamook Bay station and turned over to medics.

Littlejohn said the two adults reportedly went into the water to try to rescue the two children. The four were not identified.
