WESTPORT — The Coast Guard says a helicopter crew rescued an injured surfer from the south jetty at the entrance of Grays Harbor on Saturday afternoon.
The surfer suffered multiple fractures and other injuries while surfing near the jetty. A fellow surfer ran to shore to call for help while other surfers helped the man onto the jetty.
A Jayhawk helicopter crew from Astoria, Ore., worked with crews on the ground to hoist the injured surfer and transfer him to the Coast Guard station at Grays Harbor.
The surfer was taken to a local hospital in Aberdeen.
