A man and two children were swept away by high ocean waves at the Oregon Coast on Saturday afternoon.
Police identified the man as 47-year-old Jeremy Stiles, a Portland resident, and said he is the father of the two children.
Stiles and one child were recovered near Falcon Cove, south of Cannon Beach, and were rushed to the hospital Saturday afternoon. The child, a 7-year-old girl, was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The Coast Guard suspended its helicopter search for the second child, a 4-year-old boy, at sunset Saturday evening. He has not been located.
The conditions Saturday appeared especially treacherous. KPTV reported swells as big as 35 feet. That's drawn spectators to overlooks, wanting to see the huge swells, despite warnings to stay away.
Oregon State Police are investigating the incident.
