Coast Guard rescues kayaker who capsized off Grays Harbor

WARRENTON, Ore. (AP) — The Coast Guard rescued a kayaker who capsized in the chilly waters off Grays Harbor as the tide was on flood cycle. KOMO-TV reports the Coast Guard received a call for help around 2:10 p.m. Sunday saying a kayaker had capsized near the entrance to Grays Harbor. A Jayhawk helicopter training nearby was diverted to the real-life rescue as a rescue boat was launched. Despite the fog hugging parts of the coast, the helicopter crew spotted the kayaker floating in the waters between Damon Point and Ocean Shores at 2:45 p.m. He was eventually hoisted to safety with the help of a rescue swimmer, officials said.
