Seaside dispatch received a call of a man in the water at the Seaside Estuary at 2:50 p.m. Thursday, July 2. Upon arrival, Seaside Fire & Rescue quickly located the victim thanks to help from the caller. Resuscitative efforts were unsuccessful, and the adult male appeared to have succumbed to the elements.
An autopsy has been scheduled by the medical examiner and the identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
Authorities want to remind those spending time in the water this holiday weekend that despite warmer conditions, the ocean and nearby waterways are just as dangerous as ever. Today’s conditions were no exception and the waterways were quite turbulent.
Additional information will be released when it becomes available.
