LINCOLN CITY, Ore. — A sunny day on the beach turned tragic on Saturday when a woman drowned at the D River Wayside State Recreation Area.
Oregon State Police say the woman and her 23-year-old daughter were going for a swim when they got caught up in a rip current. The daughter made it to shore, but her mother was found face-down in the water several minutes later. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Investigators say the family was visiting the area from Vancouver, Washington. Their names are not being released at this time.
