Coast Guard suspends search for man swept away by surf

PORTLAND (AP) — The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a man who was swept away while crabbing in a bay on the northern Oregon Coast. Preliminary investigation revealed that two people, 53-year-old Srun Hong and 41-year-old Lyda Hong, had been crabbing Friday when the boat capsized in the heavy surf. Lyda Hong was recovered in the surf by a US Coast Guard helicopter crew. Oregon State Police said she was wearing a life jacket and was taken to a hospital where she was treated and released. Srun Hong, who was not wearing a life jacket, has not been located and is presumed drowned. The search was suspended Saturday.
