Safety on the Oregon Coast 2014 (12)
On Easter, a fun family beach day ended in tragedy when 58-year-old Ming Hsieh was killed when a log he was sitting near rolled over him and crushed him. "Unfortunately, no one was watching the water," Barrett said. "The water came up, moved the log, pushed him and his daughter out of the way, and knocked another family member off the log." Barrett said Hsieh went back to rescue the woman. "In the process of saving her, the log rolled over him. He actually is credited with saving her life."
