Officials say the Coast Guard Sector Columbia River was called out about 9:20 p.m. on reports that a hiker was surrounded by the rising tide. He was not injured.
About an hour later, an air crew in an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter arrived and hoisted him up into the helicopter.
Officials say this is a good reminder for people to stay alert of their surroundings and to pay attention to the tides when heading out on the beaches. MORE>>>
