Faith in humanity restored: Beachgoers form human chain to save stranded swimmer
Beachgoers at Fogarty Creek State Park in Oregon pulled a struggling swimmer to shore by forming a human chain after she and seven others were stranded on a rocky outcrop during high tide.
Five people in the group remained on the rocks just offshore and were rescued one by one by a Coast Guard helicopter Saturday, but three opted to take their chances in the surf.
According to witness Ray Felle of Portland, who recorded the drama on his phone, one swimmer became separated from the other two in the water and was struggling when the people on the beach stepped in.
Those rescued had been running between high ground on the coast and the rock formations just offshore when high tide came in and trapped them in rough seas.
