Roads End Water Rescue

A mother is hugging her daughter close tonight after a happy ending to a water rescue at Roads End State Park.

Three teens on boogie boards got stuck in the Pacific Ocean, and were fighting to get back to shore around 7:30 p.m. Friday night. North Lincoln Fire & Rescue (NLFR) was notified and dispatched units. The U.S. Coast Guard helicopter was put on standby.

An anxious mother could be seen walking around, frantically trying to wave people down. It was said over the radio her kid was out in the breakers.

Two teens made it back in on their own, but one was still out in the waves. NLFR sent two vehicles down to the beach and were able to put a jet ski in the water and rescue the teen.

“I can’t believe how fast the rescuers got here,” a witness said. “Those trucks made it down on the beach in like 90 seconds.”

According to first responders, the three teens would be fine. They did swallow some water and were tired from the ordeal.

It is unknown if a rip current was to blame for tonight’s water rescue, but a local homeowner said the southern part of Roads End State Park is notorious for them.

“I’m just glad everybody is okay,” he said.

  1. Nice work N.L.F. one of the few lucky to be saved visitors at the beach need to be alert. My walks on beach many of times there have seen kids of all ages playing in the surf parents not paying attention or to far away to help them if they get in trouble. They need to keep in mind this pacific ocean will take you away in no time at all many have not returned.
