SEATTLE —​ A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew hoisted an injured woman Saturday morning from a cliff side at Cape Falcon near Manzanita, Oregon.

At 11 a.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Columbia River​ Command Center received a request for assistance from Tillamook County​ dispatch reporting a 30-year-old woman had slipped off a trail while hiking and sustained several injuries.

Ground personnel had been unable to reach the woman’s location by vehicle due to the steepness of the cliff.

At 12 p.m., the aircrew arrived on scene. The rescue swimmer deployed and hoisted the woman into the helicopter.

At 12:06 p.m., the aircrew brought the woman safely to Nehalem Bay State Park to awaiting emergency medical services.

Her current condition is unknown.
