Coast Guard saves men stranded near Yaquina Head

NEWPORT — First responders in Newport were kept busy Sunday, May 13 by two men who got stuck on the rocks near the Yaquina Head Lighthouse in separate incidents. The first, which was called in to the U.S. Coast Guard at Station Yaquina Bay around 6:30 p.m., involved a stranded surfer stuck on the cliffside just south of the lighthouse. A passerby, Keith Oldham, was walking along the trail near the Quarry Cove parking lot when he heard something that sounded like a seagull’s cries.
