By Associated Press Reporter. Incredible pictures show the dramatic moment rescuers met a deputy sheriff off who spent minutes bravely battling choppy seas to keep a teenage surfer's head above water and pulled the two to safety. Deputy Terry Brown kept the year-old boy identified only as Joshua afloat off Southern Oregon's coast after he got caught in a rip current on Monday and the two are now recovering from hypothermia at Sutter Coast Hospital. The teen was in only around three-feet of water at Harris Beach, north of Brookings when he got pulled out by the current and was kept alive for nearly an hour by Brown until help arrived. Relief: year-old Joshua Peterson is helped ashore while other rescuers attend to Deputy Terry Brown, who was struggling to stay conscious. Brown was among the first responding to the call from the panicked boys family and he immediately stripped to his uniform pants and T-shirt, put on an orange life vest and went after the boy.

Day or Night Mysteries and Merriment on Oregon Coast It's more than just nightlife that comes to life, but the beaches offer major opportunities. Constantly updated news from all over Oregon: a comprehensive, up-to-the-minute display of news headlines from a variety of media. Back to Oregon Coast Beach Connection. Oregon Coast — It's not like any other coast, say many who have ventured to coastlines around the world and the U. There is something truly unique about a chunk of Pacific shoreline that is so pristine, so rugged and yet so accessible, with nary a fee or blocked off chunk of sand except when a natural structure cuts you off. This actually works in its favor for the cleanliness. Conversely, it scares off the tourists, although that in turn keeps the place a bit of a secret in the tourism realm. Quite a few — obviously — have some stake in promoting the area, or at the very least a have an understandable preference for this coast. Dianna Dunlap lives on the central coast and spent considerable time on the eastern seaboard as a child, especially Maine. The coast is extremely seasonal.
The dock south of the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Ore. By Bonnie Tsui. The Diving Girl was born in Portland, Ore. In my pursuit of her ghost, I find myself eyeballing three contentious Canada geese on a floating swim dock in the Willamette River. On this overcast June afternoon, cottony clouds of varying thickness hang overhead, the sun and splashes of blue visible in the gaps between puffs. The water is fine, nearly 70 degrees — warmer, in fact, than the air. Perched on the dock, goggles at the ready, my friend Fran and I wait for a big enough hole in the clouds to allow for the ritual of a sun-warmed leap into the water. From this dock, just under the Hawthorne Bridge, you can observe the downtown skyline, prettily framed across the river. You can see the Marquam Bridge to the south, cars racing across.
I've only been to Oregon with my husband in either the very late fall or early spring so that he could go deep sea fishing. And it was too cool to really lay out on the beach or play in the water. Typically, our Oregon beaches are not condusive to sunbathing.
