Fishing Vessel Overturns at Tillamook Bay in Oregon

An unidentified 38-foot fishing boat capsized at the mouth of Tillamook Bay at 4:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon.  All four people on board went into the water.

Fortunately, the U.S. Coast Guard was observing the area from a nearby watchtower when the incident occurred.  Rescue crews were dispatched immediately, and the four mariners were removed from the water by 6:00 p.m.

Two of the mariners were unresponsive at the time of the rescue.  All four were taken to the hospital.
