    OR - Jayson Thomas, 31 (fnd dec'd) & son, 3, swept out to sea, Curry Co, 15 Jan 17

    http://flashalert.net/id/OSPOre/100977

    On January 15, 2016 at about 1PM, emergency personnel responded to the report of an adult male and a toddler swept out to sea on the beach near Floras Lake in Curry County.

    The Coast Guard said Monday it's continuing to search for a father and his young son after a wave swept them to sea from an Oregon beach.
    The 31-year-old Eugene-area man and his 3-year-old son were walking on a beach about 2 miles north of Cape Blanco on the southern Oregon Coast just before 1 p.m. Sunday when the wave struck. The boy's mother saw it happen and called authorities.

    At some point volunteers may be needed for coastal searches.

    what a nightmare. Someone needs to put that poor mama on suicide watch. She must be devastated.

    Should this be 2017?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Yes it should. The flash alert sent out by the Oregon State Police has the date incorrect. I've emailed them to correct it, and alerted the Mods to correct it on the thread as well.

    I'm quite familiar with this area of the Oregon coast. Such a sad event.

    KGW reports that the father's coat and a baby carrier (presumably a wearable type) were found in the surf.

    ETA From the KGW link above: "Coast Guard crews in helicopters and search boats and state troopers in all-terrain vehicles on Sunday found only the man's jacket and a child carrier he had been wearing in the surf."

    The beach where Thomas and his son had been walking was steep, and the waves and swell in the area were particularly large because of an approaching storm.

    Coast Guard officials said Thomas’s coat and a child carrier he had been wearing were found in the surf.

    This is so terrible. I can't imagine the pain the mother must be in right now. My kids get very irritated with me when I go on and on about the surf in Oregon. I am constantly telling them they are too far out .... it makes me very nervous. They like to make fun of me about it, but it is no joke! The Oregon surf is relentless and one step -- you are in water over your head.

    I didn't know waves got that high at the shore except during a hurricane or tornado, What a horrible tragedy!
