▶️ Coast Guard helicopter rescues dog that fell off cliff along Oregon Coast


Coast Guard Air Station Astoria rescued a German Shepherd after she fell off a cliff and was injured in Ecola State Park off the Oregon Coast Wednesday night.

The following details are from the U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Northwest Twitter account:

At around 7 p.m., Sector Columbia River received an agency assist request from Cannon Beach Fire Department for a German Shepard who fell 300ft down a cliff to a remote section of the beach. This part of the beach is only accessible by repelling down from a hiking trail.
An Air Station Astoria MH-60 Jayhawk aircrew was tasked to respond. At around 8:20 p.m., the crew arrived and were able to hoist the dog to the owner at the Ecola State Park parking lot.
After a visit to the emergency vet, the dog’s owner reports that his pup is doing just fine! Thanks to the work of our great first responders in Astoria and Cannon Beach!
