(CHARLESTON, Ore.) - Coast Guard officials reported today that one of their helicopter crews airlifted a man near Charleston, Oregon. It is reported that 39-year old Frank Schneidle sustained injuries while walking along the beach close to the Cape Arago Lighthouse.

The Oregon coast is known as a treacherous location for beachcombing and even just walking during storms. Officials frequently talk about "sneaker" or rogue waves that take people by surprise and often drag them out to sea.

The Coast Guard Group North Bend, Oregon says they received today's request for assistance at 12:30 PM from the Charleston Fire Department.

Group North Bend launched an HH-65C Dolphin helicopter crew to the scene. The injured man was then airlifted to Coast Guard Air Facility Newport, Oregon, and transported to the hospital by awaiting emergency medical personnel.
