NORTH BEND, Ore. (AP)– The Coast Guard rescued four people in two incidents near Coos Bay, Oregon, on Saturday night.

A helicopter crew hoisted a man who was stranded on a rock at Shore Acres State Park around 9:20 p.m. And a boat crew rescued three people after they became stranded along the shoreline of Cape Arago at 11:15 p.m.

Coast Guard officials want to remind summer fun seekers that the tide can sneak up on people who are not aware of the forecast. Lt. Jesse Cremeans, who piloted the helicopter for one of the Saturday night rescues, asked shore visitors to be very careful about going out on rocks off shore or don’t go out at all.

No one was seriously injured during the two rescue missions.
