At 6:45 p.m. Monday, Cannon Beach Fire & Rescue and the U.S. Coast Guard rescued two Seaside boys from the rocks off Tillamook Head north of the Tillamook lighthouse.

Kevin Walsh, 14, of 1390 S. Wahanna Road, and Ronald Dean, 14, of 1399 Stillwater Court, decided to walk from the Cove in Seaside around Tillamook Head while the tide was out. But when the tide came in, they were stranded on the rocks, said Cannon Beach Fire Chief Cleve Rooper.

Cannon Beach Fire & Rescue called the Coast Guard to assist with the rescue. The boys were hoisted into a Coast Guard helicopter and taken to the Seaside airport to meet their parents. There were no injuries, Rooper said.
