SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) — A male hiker who fell more than 100 feet (30 meters) from a cliff near Cannon Beach in northwestern Oregon has been rescued by helicopter.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the hiker fell late Friday afternoon from a cliff at Hug Point State Park south of Cannon Beach.
The Coast Guard says a helicopter crew hoisted the hiker to safety after first responders on the ground reported they were unable to reach him.
Authorities say the hiker was taken to an area hospital. The hiker’s name and types of injuries weren’t released.
