    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."

    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!

    Horrible tragedy. Poor wife and mother. :(

    Sneaker waves along the Oregon coast are common this time of year and have swept away many over the years. They catch people unaware who are enjoying the beach. I don't know if that's what pulled this Dad and son out to sea, but it probably was.

    The video in this article shows the danger. The guy making a video of a large wave had to run for safety.

    [emoji33] I didn't know this was possible. My mom always warned me not to go too close to the water at every beach we've ever visited. She would scare me and say the ocean chooses who it's going to take. I'll especially be careful in Oregon.

    That is completely devastating for the mom/wife to see that and to be completely helpless.

    I can't understand how if the dad was wearing the child carrier, how it can come off... usually those things have a multitude of buckles/clasps. Also I wonder if the boy was inside the carrier, but I assume the boy was walking on the beach just because it is more fun than being in a carrier.

    I hope they will be found...
