The 16-year-old boy was able to get himself onto the rocks, then the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Department’s high-angle rescue team and a Coast Guard aircrew lifted him up from the cliff.

The teen reportedly injured a leg or foot while jumping from a rock. He was taken to a local hospital.

The Coast Guard reminds coast visitors to practice safe activities and be aware of the dangers of the area.
