Rescuers managed to pull Stiles and his daughter - both of whom were unresponsive - from the water and brought them to Providence Seaside Hospital, the US Coast Guard told the paper.

A 7-year-old girl is dead and a 4-year-old boy is missing after the children and their father were swept into the Pacific Ocean near Cannon Beach on Saturday.

It happened Saturday afternoon along Falcon Cove, which is near Arch Cape and Astoria.

The man and girl were rescued with the help of a police officer, but the boy was not found, Oregon State Police said in a statement.

The three were onshore near Cape Falcon when the wave hit, according to Oregon State Police. The girl was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to the report.

Here's hoping Morbius can deliver something similarly entertaining despite all its brooding and bats and Leto-as-Cool-Jesus angst. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the film with Lucas Foster, with Sony executive Palak Patel overseeing for the studio.

"The officer went into the ocean and was able to get the juvenile female and bring her to shore", police said. The search was called off after almost five hours.

Cannon Beach Fire Department and Cannon Beach Police Department assisted the search for the little boy but the United States Coast Guard had to send helicopters, declaring it too hard to be carried out by boat. Coast Guard officials have urged the public to avoid jetties and rocks.

A National Weather Service warning forecast high tides and rough surf along the Oregon coast this weekend, with waves up to 25 feet high expected, The Oregonian reported. People can be swept off rocks and jetties and drown while observing high surf.

"Stay away from these risky surf conditions", he said.
