Coast Guard rescues two brothers, dog from 300-foot ravine

ASTORIA, Ore. — The Coast Guard rescued two brothers, six-years-old and seven-years-old, from a 300-foot ravine at Cape Kiwanda, near Pacific City, Ore., Tuesday.

The mother of the boys called 911 approximately 12:45 p.m., after the brothers had ventured down to the bottom of the ravine and were unable to find their way back up.

A Coast Guard MH-60 rescue helicopter crew from Group/Air Station Astoria responded to the scene. A rescue swimmer was lowered into the 300 foot  ravine and located the brothers and their dog.

Two Good Samaritans who were familiar with the ravine climbed down to the bottom and briefed the rescue swimmer on a safe route to walk out.

After 15-20 minutes of climbing everyone safely made it back to the top.

There were no reports of injuries.
