Coast guard crews rescue 6 along Oregon, Washington coast

SEATTLE (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard says crews rescued six people in three different search-and-rescue calls Saturday along the Washington and Oregon coast.

The Coast Guard reports rescuing three people on Saturday morning near Coos Bay, Oregon, after their boat overturned.

On Saturday evening, two kayakers, a male and female, capsized on the northeast side of Whidbey Island. The two swam to uninhabited Hope Island where a helicopter crew retrieved them.

Also Saturday evening, the Coast Guard says a 58-year-old man fell from a dock at the Port of Ilwaco, Washington.

A crew in a boat located the unconscious man wedged between a dock and a life raft. The crew pulled him from the water and successfully revived him within a few minutes. He was taken to a hospital.
