PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Authorities say a 13-year-old Oklahoma boy drowned off the coast of Seaside, Oregon, during a family reunion.
Seaside spokesman Jon Rahl says lifeguards noticed Conner Moore of Tulsa and his 14-year-old cousin Carter Moore of Kingston, Oklahoma, struggling in the chilly ocean Thursday afternoon.
Rescuers quickly pulled Carter Moore from the water, but it took longer to reach his cousin. The U.S. Coast Guard spotted him by air and a Coast Guard swimmer teamed with lifeguards to bring him to shore.
Rahl says Conner Moore died at Providence Seaside Hospital. His cousin was flown to a Portland hospital from which he was released late Friday morning.
