(Tribune News Service) — An 18-year-old and his mother were rescued by United States Coast Guard helicopters Thursday afternoon near Coos Bay on the southern Oregon Coast, police said.

Around noon, The Coos County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report that an 18-year-old had fallen to the bottom of a cliff at Cape Arago State Park and looked to be injured. His mother was hanging onto the cliff, trying not to fall to the bottom when police were called.

Both were rescued and the son was later taken to Bay Area Hospital by ambulance for multiple injuries. The mother suffered only minor injuries, police said.
