Lifeguards Rescue Three Surfers in Seaside (Photo) - 06/10/24

SEASIDE, Ore. – June 10, 2024 – At approximately 12:40 p.m. on June 10, 2024, Seaside Fire & Rescue (SF&R) responded to a report of a water rescue in progress at Avenue S. As a preventive effort, one on-duty lifeguard had entered the water to contact three surfers and notify them they were in a rip current when the lifeguard tower noticed two of the surfers were hanging on to each other. The tower staff then quickly dispatched SF&R who arrived on scene just a few minutes later.

The additional rescue crews arrived to find three surfers being pulled out by a rip current. The SF&R lifeguards and two SF&R water team members on a jet ski responded to their aid. The surfers were brought back to shore by the lifeguards with no medical attention necessary. A U.S. Coastguard helicopter out of Air Station Astoria also responded.

SF&R and the City of Seaside remind beachgoers that rip currents can form unexpectedly. It is best practice to check in with lifeguards to ask for current conditions. The SF&R Lifeguard program begins Memorial Day weekend and typically runs through the Labor Day Holiday. For more beach safety visit seasidefire.com.
