River Rescue

Posted on 26th November 2013 at 17:11

A crabbing trip near the mouth of the Columbia River on Sunday turned into a rescue effort for Jeff and Cindy Moses of Kelso, as the couple helped to get four men out of the water when their fishing boat sank. The Moses’ were out by the Ilwaco Channel at about 11 am on Sunday, preparing their crab traps when another boat tried to go around them. As that aluminum boat went around, it hit some submerged rocks, and then sunk immediately. Jeff and Cindy Moses helped to get four of the men out of the water, while a second boat rescued a fifth man. No injuries were reported; the Coast Guard is continuing to investigate the incident.
